A stabbing in the Downtown East Side this afternoon has resulted in Vancouver’s 12th murder of the year.
It happened around noon when an altercation broke out between a 55-year-old woman and a 42-year-old man, both residents of a building on Princess Street.
The woman was stabbed and fled out the front door, collapsing on the street.
She was taken to hospital but died from her injuries.
The 42-year-old is now facing murder charges.
The two did not live in the same suite; police are still unsure of a motive at this point.
