A woman sent to hospital after an assault that killed a man in Duncan on Christmas Eve has now died in hospital, officials confirm.
The BC Coroners Service said the woman succumbed to her injuries on Saturday, but would not share details about her identity.
RCMP said Sunday the case is now being treated as a double homicide.
The woman was found injured along with an injured man around 11 p.m. on Dec. 24 in the area of Trunk Road and Canada Avenue in Duncan.
Both were transported to hospital, but the man succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead that same night.
RCMP say investigators believe the attack was targeted and are now looking for two male persons of interest, along with pursuing several leads.
The Vancouver Island integrated major crime unit (VIIMCU) is continuing to investigate.
Anyone who witnessed the assault, or has dashcam or surveillance video, is asked to contact the VIIMCU at 250-380-6211 or reach out anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
