Police investigate deadly attack involving bats and a sword

Vancouver police are investigating after a 19-year-old man was murdered Wednesday night in a vicious attack involving baseball bats and a sword.
The attack occurred in a residential area in the 6300 block of Elgin Street in East Vancouver at around 10:30 Wednesday night.
Police say they were called to the scene after witnesses called 911 and reported seeing as many as 10 people attacking a man in the middle of the street with bats, clubs and a sword.
The 19-year-old victim, from Vancouver, was taken to hospital when police arrived but died on route from his injuries.
“They [the injuries] were severe and it’s believed, though it’s up to the Coroner to decide the exact cause of death, that the sword was the cause of death,” said Const. Brian Montague with the VPD. “That’s one thing we’re hoping to do, is obtain that weapon and get forensics information.”
A total of five men between the ages of 19-21 have been arrested so far. One was arrested near 41st and Ross Street, while the other four were arrested at Vancouver General Hospital, where they went of their own accord for an injury, according to police.
Police say the victim was known to them and suggest ties to the drug trade and loose gang connections.
Investigators are trying to determine if more were involved in the attack, or if the victim was accompanied by anyone.
They are still trying to determine why the victim and suspects were in the area of the attack, located just south of Memorial South Park.
Two of those arrested have been released from police custody and no charges have yet been laid.
Anyone with information is asked to call the homicide investigation unit at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Most likely but it could be a lot of things, really.

Although, you don't think of a rapier right away for a gang hit.

I realised this may sound really racist, but I only said katana simply because it's a perfectly constructed weapon of death.

Ha ha! :P

Well no, plus every knife/sword shop like House of Knives there's like 20+ katanas compared to about 5-7 other swords total.

Brings back memories.

Back in the mid to late 1970's and early 1980's sword and machete attacks were fairly common in Asian gang disputes as well as using other martial arts weapons such as nunchuks and knives and cleavers of course. Early one Saturday morning I attended the aftermath of a gang brawl (the Viet Chin and the Red Eagles had tangled apparently over girlfriend of one of the gang members) in a Chinese restaurant downtown on Granville - blood everywhere but no fatalities. And of course none of the injured or putative participants could remember anything that happened and witnesses were too terrified to talk.

As time went on associated Asian gangs from the US, principally San Francisco began bringing in guns and the violence quotient was upped as swords and machetes were put aside.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

I heard from someone on the inside that there was one other injury and apparently he was holding the victims head and had his fingers amputated (partially?) by the sword.
