A 24-year-old Burnaby man is dead and a 22-year-old man charged with his murder after a fatal stabbing in east Vancouver early Saturday morning.

The victim was allegedly stabbed by another passenger inside a moving vehicle in the 1300-block of Victoria drive at around 12:30 a.m. Sept. 17, say the Vancouver Police Department.

The driver, fearing for his safety, stopped the vehicle and fled. Nearby citizens checked the car and called 911 after seeing the injured man inside.

When police arrived, the suspect was gone and the victim was clinging to life inside the car. He died of his injuries in hospital at about 1 p.m. that day.

Shane Frederick James Yukich, 22, has been charged with one count of murder. He is known to police in Metro Vancouver and Ontario for violent and property-related offences.

The death is Vancouver's 11th homicide of 2011.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Vancouver police homicide unit at 604-717-2500 or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
