Whistler RCMP can confirm that two people have been arrested and two people have died in relation to the shots fired calls near the Sundial Hotel that police received earlier today.
On July 24, 2022, at about 12:19 p.m., Whistler RCMP responded to a report of shots fired at a local area hotel.
One person died at the scene, and the second succumbed to injuries while receiving medical attention at a local medical clinic.
The incident happened in the village area out in the open. The police have not yet determined if this incident and a recently located burned car are related, or if the incidents are related to ongoing gang conflict.
“I’m confident with the work done by our investigators that there remains no risk to community safety,” says Inspector Robert Dykstra, Officer in Charge of the Sea to Sky RCMP.
The investigation is in its early stages. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has been engaged with local investigators, and other units are also supporting the investigation.
While this matter is very serious and the investigation is in its infancy, we can say there is no ongoing risk to public safety, says Corporal Angela Kermer, Media Relations Officer for the Sea to Sky RCMP.
