Breaking: Two people killed, 2 suspects arrested after Whistler Village shooting

Police say two people are dead and two suspects have been arrested after a shooting at the mountain resort of Whistler, B.C., on Sunday afternoon.

Inspector Robert Dykstra, the officer in charge of the Sea to Sky RCMP, said officers were on patrol when a report came in just after noon of shots fired at a hotel in Whistler Village.

“They found one male there obviously deceased and a second male in distress,” said Dykstra. 

Efforts were made to save the man’s life, but he was later declared dead in hospital, he said. 

Officers followed a vehicle on Highway 99, stopped it near Squamish, and two people were arrested in connection with the shooting, Dykstra said. 

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team will be taking over the investigation, with assistance from British Columbia’s anti-gang agency, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, and others. 

Dykstra said he doesn’t know the names of the victims and isn’t aware if they were known to police.
