The fatal shooting happened at about 2 p.m. March 23 on a quiet lane in the sleepy beach-side village.

Vancouver Police Const. Lindsey Houghton said Surrey RCMP were dispatched to a domestic disturbance after a woman called 9-1-1. Two officers arrived moments later and were confronted by a man.

Houghton said the man was shot by police and died a short time later outside the house.

Vancouver Police Major Crime investigators were called to the scene.

VPD is asking anyone with information on the incident to contact Vancouver Police Homicide Squad at 604-717-2500.

Investigators said residents can expect Vancouver Police to canvass the neighbourhood to locate more witnesses.
