We are learning more about the alleged criminal history of a young man gunned down in East Vancouver last night.
Vancouver Police say the city’s tenth murder victim of the year is 20 year old Samir Mokhtar.
Mokhtar was out on bail, charged with manslaughter in the death of 20-year-old Aladdin Ramadan in Burnaby last September.
The Vancouver man fled Canada following the murder, but was later arrested at Seattle airport after he arrived from Dubai.
A 16-year-old boy is also charged with second-degree murder in the Burnaby shooting.
Mokhtar was killed near Seaforth Drive and Rupert Street.
Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
No one is in custody, and a motive for the killing has not been released.
