Halifax and East Vancouver Shootings

CBC is reporting that "Halifax Regional Police are investigating a shooting that happened just after midnight on Gottingen Street. Officers in the area were flagged to the scene with a report of shots being fired around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, according to a media release. Halifax police say officers found one man who had been shot, and learned of another victim who had already been taken to hospital. They added both victims have non-life-threatening injuries."

"The incident, which occurred near police headquarters on the block between Cogswell and Falkland streets, is not believed to be random, police say. Police say the suspects are believed to have left the scene in a black GMC SUV."

Meanwhile back on the ranch, CTV is reporting that "One of the two people hospitalized after a shooting in East Vancouver last month has died, and a suspect has been taken into custody. Zuhoruddin Mansoori succumbed to his injuries Monday morning, marking the city's 13th homicide of 2023, according to the Vancouver Police Department."

The 35-year-old and another man were shot near Victoria Drive and East 28th Avenue shortly after midnight on Sept. 10. Authorities said the second victim is still recovering from serious injuries. Officers arrested a suspect in the shooting on Wednesday, two days after Mansoori's death, but have not released the individual's name."
