East Vancouver Shooting and Stabbings Linked: VPD

Vancouver Police are investigating possible links between a shooting and double stabbing at two East Vancouver locations hours apart.
Const. Brian Montague said VPD responded to the 5200 block of Dumfries Street about 1 am Friday after 911 calls about gun shots in the area.
“A short time later, a 26 year old Surrey resident arrived at hospital with a non-life threatening gun shot wound,: Montague said in a release.
“Earlier in the evening, just before 9:00 p.m., a 17 and 19 year old were transported to hospital with stab wounds.”
He said both stabbing victims claimed their attacks took place in the in the 4700 block of Slocan St. The older teen has since been released from hospital.

“Investigators believe both incidents are connected and do not feel these attacks were random,” Montague said. “There are no suspects in custody.”
Anyone with information about either of these incidents is asked to contact the VPD investigators at 604-717-2541.
