Vancouver Police responded to a fatal late night shooting incident in the Downtown Eastside area.

Officers were called to the scene at the Savoy Hotel at 258 East Hastings Street, near the corner of Main and Hastings streets, just before 10:30 pm on Friday. When they arrived at the scene, they discovered a man in his late 50s with gunshot wounds.

The man was rushed to hospital for treatment, but he succumbed to his injuries shortly after.

Very few details are available at this time as the investigation is still in its early stages.
