Roads have reopened in downtown Duncan after a police investigation. The area affected was Kenneth and Jubilee streets near Government, it’s been cordoned off since as early as 3am lasting until around 2pm.
Reports say that the cause of the shutdown was an investigation homicide that took place late last night. A 33-year-old man was stabbed and later succumbed to his injuries. No word on the assailant.
Dawn Roberts with the BC RCMP says, “Investigators did close off a wide area as it appears the victim moved through the downtown area before being located.”
It was the Forensic Identification Services were on scene Saturday along with police to search the area for any evidence.
Listener reports say that those living in the area were told to shelter in place early this morning after the incident occurred. Other reports describe seeing lots of blood on the sidewalk on Jubilee Street.
Roberts also said there is no reason to believe that there is a risk to the general public.
