Ok… I wouldn’t normally Blog something like this, but when it’s on your own doorstep you kind of feel compelled. I’d just finished a great night out with friends in Kitsilano with my old Uni buddy Jim who came North of the US border for the day (he’s based in Seattle right now), only to find the blocks around my building entrance taped off with Police tape and homicide investigators running around everywhere.
After having spoken to the concierge in my building, we learned that there had been a double homicide earlier in the night just outside the “Gotham Steakhouse” which is on the next block from where I live. A kind of freaky thing to come home to.
Heading upstairs and looking out my bedroom window, we were somewhat disturbed being able to have a clear view of the crime scene.
After a quick scour of the web, I’m unable to find any more details on what happened, but I think it’s a fair bet to guess that it’s a targeted, gang-related hit.
