Vancouver police say a man has been charged in the homicide of a 62 year old man at a homeless camp in the Downtown Eastside.
Police say 50-year-old Glen Martin has been charged with manslaughter in the death of Jesus Cristobal-Esteban.
Const. Tania Visintin says in a news release that Cristobal-Esteban suffered a serious head injury in an altercation on Jan. 1 and was taken to hospital where he died the next day.
The death was Vancouver's first homicide of 2020 and the police department has expressed concerns about the level of violence at the camp in Oppenheimer Park.
Last week the police seized multiple weapons including nine guns inside a shared or communal tent in the park.
