A 27-year-old man has been charged in relation to a shooting in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside yesterday.
Vancouver police say Andy Oscar Owusu has been charged with aggravated assault, discharge of a firearm with intent to wound, and possession of a loaded firearm.
A second person who was also taken into custody at the time has been released without charge.
The charges come after police were called just before 5 a.m. to the intersection of Abbott and West Pender Street where they found a taxi with the back window smashed and a 29-year-old woman inside with a bullet wound.
She was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to fully recover.
