Homicides investigated

Metro Vancouver's Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is working on two new cases after unrelated deaths in White Rock and Burnaby.

Both incidents happened Sunday, the first in White Rock, south of Vancouver, when a man was found dead in a home just steps from the beach.

RCMP Insp. Davy Lee says the man was found as officers responded to a report of some sort of fight in the house, but he's not saying how the man died or if any suspects have been identified.

The second incident occurred just before 11 p.m., in a quiet residential neighbourhood near the south end of Robert Burnaby Park in Burnaby.

A middle-aged man suffered several gunshot wounds in what investigators believe was a targeted attack and the unnamed victim died a short time later in hospital.

Officers have not commented on a motive for the shooting and no arrests have been made.
