Meanwhile, Vancouver police are still investigating the deaths of Wu Shumin and Sun Yingying, found shot and killed in a car in February in a quiet Point Grey neighbourhood.

B.C. Attorney General David Eby, who represents the Point Grey riding, told Global News he is aware “of allegations of organized crime involvement” in the double-homicide, but he said he cannot comment on police investigations.

“The brutal shootings of two women in my otherwise peaceful and quiet home community came as a shock to many of my neighbours and friends, and certainly to me,” Eby stated.
