VANCOUVER Police informed about the murder of two women who were shot dead in a white BMW SUV on the city’s west side.
Investigators from VPD’s Homicide Unit spent Sunday collecting evidence from the crime scene near West 8 Avenue and Discovery Street, after the bodies were discovered just after 8 a.m. by a neighbourhood resident out for a walk. The victims have been identified as Shu-Min Wu, 50, and Ying Ying Sun, 39.
Vancouver’s Emergency Response Team was briefly deployed to the neighbourhood on Sunday morning to search a house near the crime scene, as investigators feared there could be additional victims inside.
The targeted murders are the first and second homicides in Vancouver this year.
Anyone with information or dash-cam video from the area is asked to contact VPD’s Homicide Unit at 604-717-2500.
