Man fatally shot in Vancouver but police say public is not at risk

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 14 Jul, 2020
  • Man fatally shot in Vancouver but police say public is not at risk

A 30-year-old man has been shot and killed in Vancouver's Punjabi Market and police and the coroner say they're investigating the city's latest homicide.

A statement from Vancouver police says Amin Shahin Shakur died at the scene. He was found just after 11 p.m. Monday as officers responded to an alley behind several small shops.

The statement says the victim does not have an extensive police history and there is no risk to the public. The homicide is Vancouver's eighth of 2020, with half of the deaths occurring this month.

Those include a fatal stabbing on Canada Day and a double slaying in east Vancouver on July 7, but police have made arrests in each of those cases.
