Police are asking for the public’s help in locating two possible witnesses to an incident in downtown Vancouver that resulted in the death of a 26-year-old man.
The incident happened at the corner of Abbott and West Pender Street on Aug. 18 at about 1:15am when the victim allegedly got into a verbal exchange with several women and an unknown man intervened. What followed, according to VPD, was a confrontation that turned physical.
The 26-year-old victim was taken to the hospital for what was initially thought of as a minor injury but later died. The cause of his death is currently unknown.
The city’s Major Crime Section believes there were witnesses in the area at the time of the alleged argument and released photos of the possible witnesses. Police said these women are not suspects in the case.
Anyone who may know the identities of the two women are asked to call Vancouver Police Homicide Detective Shane Aitken at 604-717-2546.
