Mayor Robertson heard gunshots last night from home
"Like many people in the neighbourhood, I too heard gunshots while I was at home early this morning," Mayor Gregor Robertson said in a statement just released to the press. "Anytime an incident like this happens it is very disturbing. I know all of us in the area are extremely concerned about this shocking public display of gun violence. This type of brazen gang activity is unacceptable in our city.”
"As I learned this morning of the extent of the gang-related violence that happened on Oak Street overnight, I felt it was important to offer my support to the Vancouver Police who have an intensive investigation underway. I spoke to Chief Chu this morning and I know the VPD are pulling out all the stops and working hard to arrest those involved," Robertson said.
