Vancouver recorded its first homicide of the year following an assault at a troubled homeless camp in the city's Downtown Eastside.

Police say officers were called to Oppenheimer Park on New Year's Day where a 62-year-old man had been assaulted.

They say Jesus Cristobal-Esteban was taken to hospital where he died on Thursday.

The identity of the suspect is not known, although police say they believe the victim and suspect had some sort of an interaction before the assault.
