Vancouver police are looking for information after a man died of stab wounds last night.

Police were flagged down on West Hastings near Carrall Street for what a witness believed was a drug overdose after seeing a man collapse on the sidewalk.

"BC Ambulance Services arrived on scene and found stab wounds while performing chest compressions," states the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) in a press release.

The 37-year-old man was taken to hospital where he died of his wounds.

No arrests have been made at this time. Police did not state if there are any suspects in the case at this time.

Anyone with tips can call the VPD’s homicide unit at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.

This is the fourth murder so far in the City of Vancouver in 2021.
