Shooting on Davie leaves one man injured
Vancouver Police are investigating after a man has been shot in a Tim Horton's on 700 block Davie Street on Tuesday night.
Just after 7:30 p.m., police received several calls of multiple shots fired.
"Officers arrived to find a 30-year-old man, shot several times," Constable Lyndsay Houghton said to reporters at the scene. "He was rushed to the hospital and is being treated for non-life threatening wounds."
Houghton said the victim was sitting alone at the time of the shooting, and that he was known to the police.
He said the victim at one point left the Tim Horton's, and ran east-bound on Davie Street, and was soon stopped by police officers.
He said there were no suspect descriptions yet, and asked witnesses to contact investigators at 604-717-2571.
"Any time you have a shooting in a busy downtown area at 7:30 at night, this is concerning for us," Houghton said. "It's a complete disregard for public safety, and it's unacceptable that this happen in our community."
