Vancouver has recorded its fifth homicide of 2016.
A 28-year-old woman has died after an attack early Thursday morning, outside a bar in Vancouver’s downtown entertainment district.
Const. Brian Montague says, in a release, that the unnamed victim was allegedly assaulted by two other women shortly after the three had a brief altercation inside the Caprice Nightclub.
Staff at the club intervened to stop the attack on the street, which occurred at about 2 a.m., and the victim was rushed to hospital but died Thursday night.
Officers arrested two suspects about 30 minutes after the assault.
Montague says two women have been interviewed and released from custody pending further investigation and the results of an autopsy.
