The Independent Investigations Office, which probes police incidents involving death or serious harm, says the shooting occurred early Thursday while police were answering a 911 call about a man with a knife

Forty-five-year-old Ryan Jacob succumbed to his injuries soon after being transported to Vancouver General Hospital.

Chief Gibby Jacob says Ryan was his son, and the death has sent a shock wave through his family and the community

He says Ryan was a loving father, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, sportsman and an artist.

The coroners service and the Independent Investigations Office are looking into the case.
