  • Woman found with gunshot wounds in Downtown Eastside: VPD

Vancouver – Vancouver Police are investigating after a woman was found with gunshot wounds in the Downtown Eastside early Thursday morning.

Officers discovered the injured 39-year-old near Main Street and East Cordova just before 1 a.m., after she approached a passerby and asked for help. When officers arrived, they found the victim badly injured. VPD provided immediate first aid to the woman, who was taken to hospital and is now receiving treatment for serious injuries.

Investigators believe the shooting likely occurred in the Downtown Eastside, but have been unable to obtain further details from the victim due to her injuries.

The incident is the third shooting in Vancouver since Sunday, when officers were called to a social housing building near West Pender and Richards Street just after midnight for reports that an unknown man had entered the building and shot someone. The victim in that case, a 34-year-old man, fled with non-life-threatening injuries and was later found in the Downtown Eastside.

Two days later, on August 9, a 38-year-old man was shot outside his home near Commercial Drive and Graveley Street. His injuries are also non-threatening.

No arrests have been made, VPD is investigating whether any of the shootings are connected.

Witnesses, or anyone with information about these cases, is asked to call VPD’s Major Crime Section at 604-717-2541.
