Vancouver police have laid charges four months after a man was murdered outside a local restaurant.

According to a release from VPD, 48-year old Vancouver resident, Ngoc Chau Nguyen has been charged for the April 2018 murder of 55-year-old Minh Huu Dam.

On April 22, emergency crews were called to Kingsway and Nanaimo Street just before 1:30 am, for reports of an injured man.

Huu was taken to the hospital but ultimately succumbed to his injuries.
