Yesterday, a fight broke out amongst a few boys in a large group of Asian teenagers crossing a Vancouver parking lot, headed in the direction of McDonalds restaurant. I was leaving McDonalds with a take-out coffee and later posted an article on Blogger News Network about what I witnessed: “Big Mac Attack Ends in Stabbing”.

I’ve just learned that it ended in murder.

The victim, 13 yr. old Chris Poeung, died in hospital late last night.

I heard a police officer yesterday, at the scene of the stabbing, say, “The suspect goes to Tupper [High] School.”

For the full eye-witness account, see Downtown Eastside Enquirer blog, which has received much more traffic than usual as a result of this tragic event in the midst of a holiday weekend in Canada.
