A 20-year-old Vancouver man is dead in the city’s second homicide in as many nights.
It happened on Seaforth Drive near Rupert Street just after 9 o’clock last night.
Constable Brian Montague says the victim is known to police given his criminal record…
“Police attended and located a 20-year-old man laying at the side of the road suffering gunshot wounds. Paramedics arrived and declared the man dead at the scene. I can tell you he is someone we are familiar with. He’s actually currently on bail for a charge of mansluaghter, which is one of the reasons we believe the shooting was targeted.”
Montague says no arrests have been made and the investigation is still ongoing.
The victim’s name is not being released.
