Editor’s note: This is a developing story.
There was a strong police presence in Vancouver’s Gastown neighbourhood this weekend.
Vancouver Police confirmed to Daily Hive that they were investigating a “serious incident” in Crab Park and that more details would be provided as they were available.
On Saturday, May 7, Crab Park was blocked off with police tape. At one point, vehicles were unable to access the area via Waterfront Road and multiple police vehicles lined the street.

After an encampment was cleared from Oppenheimer Park in Strathcona, where more than 300 people were staying, Crab Park has had a number of people experiencing homelessness living in the park.
Located between Canada Place and the Port of Vancouver, the waterfront park is a popular filming location for the CW shows and has great views of the North Shore mountains.
Daily Hive has reached the Vancouver Police Department and the Vancouver Parks Board and will update this story.
