Charges laid in Vancouver incident; grandmother dead, child hurt
33-year-old Ka Chi David Siu has been charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder, in relation to a death yesterday in Vancouver.
Vancouver Police arrived at the 3300 block on Kingsway (at Joyce street) at 10:30 a.m., after receiving a 9-1-1 call regarding a crying child and blood on the walls of the apartment's hallway. Siu was holding a knife and was shot by police. Inside the apartment, officers found a child (less than two years old) and a dead woman.
The child was taken to BC Children's Hospital with multiple injuries.
Siu was also taken to hospital, where he remains under guard and is being treated for his gunshot injuries.
The dead woman has been identified as 63-year-old Yin Nor Hsao. She was found with multiple injuries and was declared dead at the scene.
Vancouver Police today said the woman was Siu's mother and the little girl is his niece. The police's release says the girl is expected to survive, although the extent of her injuries is not yet known. The girl was dropped off at her now-deceased grandmother's house, as Yin Nor Hsao often looked after the girl while her parents were at work, the Vancouver PD said today.
