Sgt. Randy Fincham has revealed that Vancouver police was unable to find any connection among the victims other than the fact that they were present at an apartment building at Barclay and Bute streets in Vancouver’s west end at around 6:45 p.m. PT, at the time of incident. Fincham stated that “It appears that a lot of these victims were unrelated to each other and they had no dealings with each other tonight. It was something that possibly happened in the hallway.” Both police and paramedics responded to the incident on-time, as paramedics started treating stab victims, ranging in age from their 20s to 60s, on the spot. In total, overall three men and three women were shifted to a nearby hospital, while a police officer who was slightly injured in attempt to arrest one of the suspects was treated on-site.
