Metro Vancouver’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is investigating the circumstances of the death of a man at a park in Richmond.
On Thursday, Richmond RCMP arrived to the area of R.C. Talmey Elementary School after receiving reports of gun shots fired at approximately 12:30 a.m.
A man’s body was discovered at the park immediately adjacent to the school. Fire crews were first to arrive and made attempts to save the victim, but he was later pronounced dead at the scene.
The school opened as scheduled for the day, although outdoor activities including breaks, lunch and physical education classes were limited to the indoors as police were still probing the taped-off park for evidence.
