VPD investigates Downtown Eastside homicide after man stabbed to death

Vancouver Police are investigating a homicide in the Downtown Eastside, after a man who was stabbed on the street earlier this month succumbed to his injuries in hospital yesterday.

VPD homicide investigators believe victim Zane Ponecappo, 29, was stabbed during a confrontation near Columbia Street and East Hastings around 5 p.m. on July 9. He collapsed nearby and was taken to hospital, but died Thursday evening.

Investigators have been working in the neighborhood since the stabbing to collect evidence, and ask anyone with information to call VPD Homicide at 604-717-2500.

Ponecappo’s death is Vancouver’s ninth homicide of 2022.
