A man has been killed during a daytime shooting at Vancouver International Airport in Richmond on Sunday afternoon.

Traffic cones blocked off a section of the global and domestic departure areas at the airport, and police erected tall, white screens in front of an entrance, blocking views of the shooting scene.

One employee at a nearby auto rental centre says he heard multiple gunshots fired in the area.

Meanwhile, YVR said in a statement that the airport is open and safe for workers and those who need to need to travel.

Red and yellow police tape surrounded the scene, both inside the terminal and outside where passengers would normally be dropped off to catch their flights.

There are no suspects in custody, they said.

The shooting, which occurred mid-afternoon outside the departures terminal, was the latest in a spate of gang-related violence across B.C.'s Lower Mainland, police said.

Shortly after the shooting, a burned-out vehicle has been found in Surrey, which is believed to be the suspects' vehicle used in the murder, according to a report by the Vancouver Sun.

NSW Health Authorities said urgent genome sequencing is now underway to determine the source of infection. A Sydney man has tested positive for COVID-19, in what appears to be a case of community transmission.

Jang said that IHIT will be working with airport teams to access all surveillance cams.

IHIT is asking residents who were driving along the route from the airport to the area where the vehicle was found to contact them, especially if they may have dashcam video.

Police in Canada are trying to find the suspect or suspects involved in the shooting in front of the main terminal of "Vancouver" International Airport, Russia Today reported.

"The safety and security of our employees, community, and passengers remains our priority, and we are fully cooperating with RCMP to support the investigation".

On Sunday, federal Minister of Public Safety Bill Blair added his voice to the chorus of officials disturbed by the situation in the region.

Sgt. Frank Jang says the 28-year-old shooting victim was known to police.

"My thoughts are with the communities in the Lower Mainland who have been impacted by gun and gang violence far too often, particularly over the last week", Blair said.
