A 33-year-old Vancouver man has died after what police say was an incident of road rage early Friday morning.

Just after 1:30 a.m., police received a call about a man shot near Bridgeway Street, just under the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge.

When officers arrived, they found the victim had died from gunshot wounds.

“We are still in the process of trying to put it all together, but early indications are suggesting that this was the result of a traffic incident that led to this murder,” said Vancouver police Sgt. Jason Robillard.

A woman believed to be in the same vehicle as the victim suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital. She has since been released.

“No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing, the identity of the victim has not been released as a next of kin has not yet been notified,” Robillard said.

Homicide investigators are asking anyone who may have dashcam footage near the intersection of McGill Street and Renfrew Street Friday morning, between 1:30 and 2 a.m., or who has information about this incident to contact homicide detectives at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

This is Vancouver’s 14th homicide of 2018.
