A woman was stabbed to death inside an apartment building in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood.
Vancouver Police responded to a report of a disturbance inside a building near Ontario Street and First Avenue around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday.
“When officers arrived, they found the victim suffering from fatal stab wounds,” says Sgt. Steve Addison in a statement.
She died at the scene; her death is the city’s third homicide of 2022.
