One man dead, one arrested in Mount Pleasant homicide investigation

This is the city's seventh homicide of the year.
Police have released details about a Mount Pleasant homicide that took place earlier in June for the first time.

Vancouver Police have been investigating the seventh homicide of the year for almost a month now and have just released details.

Around 4:30 p.m. on June 2, 2022, VPD officers responded to reports of an assault near East First Avenue and Main Street in Mount Pleasant, according to a press release. At the scene they found 56-year-old Scott Carver, who was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

He succumbed to those injuries and died on June 14, say police.

The cause of death is part of the ongoing investigation and police say they cannot disclose that information at this time.

A 61-year-old man the VPD has yet to name has been arrested but charges have not yet been laid.

The Major Crime Section is handling the investigation but can confirm this incident is not related to organized crime however they believe the suspect and victim knew each other. They are asking anyone with information to call 604-717-2500.
