A woman named Nicole, who did not give her last name, told CTV News Vancouver she didn't hear shots, but she did see the victim.
"All I heard was some yelling, so we looked outside and saw this man rolling around on the ground," she said. "We see that quite a bit and just assumed he was a drug addict. And then, the next thing you know, the police were attending."
Nicole said the shooting happened in "a very bad area," and that she and her neighbours sometimes worry about being victims of violence themselves.
