Vancouver police dealing with distraught man with gun at Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel

-just heard about this police incident involving a man with a gun inside the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel.

-police and their emergency response team have the hotel locked down.


An area around the Fairmont Pacific Rim is blocked off to traffic and pedestrians this morning.

-hope the cops can get this guy out of the Fairmont peacefully. Poor hotel guests.

Reports are saying he's on the third floor, there are no guest rooms on the 3rd, its all conference rooms and open public areas up there.

Lol, I know eh. I spoke with the manager at the building and he said the cops had basically boxed the guy in right away and no one was in real danger.
