3 dead in 2 homicides

Three people have been killed in what Vancouver police say are two separate homicides in the city.

Const. Tania Visintin says two people were found unresponsive in a hotel room in the Downtown Eastside at about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

She says one died at the scene while the other died later in hospital.

Officers were called to a southeast Vancouver neighbourhood about 30 minutes later for a report of shots fired.

One person was found dead in front of a home.

Visintin says the shooting and the two hotel deaths are not linked and the public is not believed to be at risk.
