something interesting i heard about the guy that got killed in the bacon's cayenne, apparently, he builds sub boxes with hidden compartments in it, not sure if it was true or not

Yes it's true. It's was confirmed in the media by the police that he was killed because he was driving the truck that belong to the Bacons. He was supposed to install a stereo system in that truck.

Callers to Global News Report one person may have been taken to hospital already. It's unknown if there are any other victims.

There is a very heavy police presence in the area.
For those that don't know by now, it was a police shooting of a suspect in a stolen vehicle.

TONS of cops and ambulances blocking off SW Marine Dr right in front of Denny's (near Cambie). Another shooting? Seems like a pretty overwhelming response by the emergency folks.

I counted ~8 police cruisers and 2 ambulances all with strobes on, but no sirens.

10:10pm / Apr 6

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - Vancouver police confirm there was a shooting on Monday night.

Witnesses tell us they heard shots fired in the area of Heather and Marine Drive at around 10 p.m.. One person tells us they heard eight shots fired. Police officers and emergency crews converged on the area and yellow tape has been put up. There are reports of a body covered up at a Husky station and a silver car sitting nearby.

Police have closed off 70th Avenue to eastbound traffic at Heather Street. Eastbound traffic on Marine Drive is also closed between Heather Street and Cambie Street. Side streets and alleys are also apparently closed in this neighborhood.

We will have more on this story as the details come in.

VANCOUVER — Another man is dead in a targeted shooting outside a corner store at 70th and Marine in Vancouver.

The man appears to have gotten out of a silver BMW to go into the store and was shot when exiting. His body lay beside the car at 11 p.m. Monday as police cordoned off several blocks.

Shots rang out about 9:40 p.m., neighbours said.

There were two batches of gunfire, up to 12 shots in all.

At least 12 police vehicles were on the scene. Ambulances responded, but left once they saw the victim was dead.

The body lay near a service bay of a gas station next to the store. The BMW — an older model convertible — was still sitting with its engine running two hours after the shooting. Cheryl Dycke heard the shots and a woman screaming.

Dycke had just been leaving for the store from her apartment across the street.

“It is quite shocking. I thought it was a robbery,” said Dycke.

She said more people could have been hit as the store is very busy.

“I thought it was fireworks at first,” she said. "I hope they catch the guy."

Police canvassed low-rise apartment buildings across from murder scene looking for witnesses.

Many lined 70th Ave. watching the action unfold.

Traffic was being diverted off the busy thoroughfares through neighbourhoods.

The shooting comes after the brutal slaying Friday of Wendy Ladner Beaudry near Pacific Spirit Park and the shooting death Saturday night of a 24-year-old Vancouver man.

The victim in that homicide was David Phong Quoi Banh, who was found slumped over in the driver’s seat of a white SUV in an east Vancouver restaurant parking lot on Saturday night.

"It appears to have been a targeted shooting, but it’s too early in the investigation to confirm that," police said in a statement earlier Monday. "Mr. Banh was not known to police."

Monday night's death marks Vancouver's 12th homicide of 2009 and the region's 31th.
