Vancouver –

The victim of a shooting at an upscale hotel near the Vancouver waterfront has been identified.

Vancouver police said the man found unresponsive in the Fairmont Pacific Rims parking lot was 35-year-old Amandeep Manj. He was found by a witness and pronounced dead at the scene.

A huge police presence formed around the hotel after the victim was discovered and the hotel’s parkade was cordoned off with police tape.

No arrests have been made in connection with Manj’s death, and police have not released any further information about him, including whether he was known to investigators.

Early Thursday morning, two residential roads in East Vancouver were behind police tape after a burned vehicle was found overnight.

Witnesses say that when crews arrived at the intersection of Penticton and Charles streets, a truck was engulfed in flames.

Police have not released details of the cause of the fire or stated whether it is related to the gang conflict in Lower Mainland.

Officers said they are trying to find out if it is linked to the shooting.

“Our investigators are working to determine if there is a link between this arson and yesterday’s killings,” said Const. Tania Visintin in a statement.

Anyone with information please call the police at 604-717-2500. Tips can also be left anonymous at Crime Stoppers.
