News1130 is reporting that someone got shot to death last night at West 1st & Cypress – what’s happing in our hood???
It was another deadly night on Vancouver’s west side. The backdrop for the city’s latest shooting death is at Cypress and West 1st. Kitsilano is not known for violent crime involving guns but last night, around 9:30, the quiet street was a crime scene where a man in his thirties was shot in the head.
This morning, a man from a small town in Ontario says it’s not quite how he imagined his new neighborhood, although he admits he has become almost immune to it, after reading and hearing about it all the time.
It sounds like witnesses heard more than one shot. Police say the dead man had a history with the law, and they think they’ll find this will be a story with ties to other crime. They don’t believe the public is in danger.
