File # 2022-3639

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. 

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.

Please note this Whistler related release is posted on the Squamish Newsroom page due to technicalities.
