Shooting victim memorial

A memorial was held Sunday for a man gunned down in East Vancouver last week in what police are calling a road rage incident. 

Willis Hunt was shot and killed Aug. 10 underneath the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge near Bridgeway Street. The 33-year-old's death was a huge shock to the Commercial Drive community in which he lived. 

"He was so full of respect for everyone. He just loved life. He loved life and he was a kind person and a generous person. If you needed something and he could give it, he would give it," Hunt's mother, Sunni Hunt, told CTV News earlier this week.

Friends and family gathered Sunday to commemorate Hunt's life. He was a passenger in a Toyota Matrix that police say was involved in a traffic dispute with a white sedan just moments before Hunt was shot, attempting to protect the woman driving the car. 

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call VPD at 604-717-2500 or give an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-84777.
