I am away for a couple of days but wanted to put up a few details of Vancouver’s latest murder.
Vancouver Police confirmed late Thursday that a Surrey man shot near Marguerite Street and West 49th Avenue earlier in the day had died of his injuries.
Const. Jason Doucette said police received shots fired calls from the area just before 1 p.m.
“Officers located a man on the street suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He was rushed to hospital in critical condition and died hours later,” Doucette said. “Based on the initial investigation, this was not a random shooting and no arrests have been made. The victim’s name is not being released at this time.”
The murder is Vancouver’s sixth of 2018.
Anyone with information is asked to call VPD major crime investigators at 604-717-2500.
