It was the end of the day so Mr. Bell and a few colleagues decided to wind down by playing a few rounds of the video game Modern Warfare 2 at the office before heading home. A little while later, sudden, intense yelling filled the office hallways.
"We originally thought there was some sort of domestic dispute out there ... that was until I clearly heard my name," said Mr. Bell.
"The guy sounded seriously angry and was instructing me to slowly come into the hall with my hands on my head."
It was Toronto's Emergency Task Force, more commonly known as the SWAT team, responding to calls of a man in an office with a gun.
