Man shot and killed by Vancouver police identified as Michael Vann Hubbard

The Vancouver Police Department has identified the man shot and killed by one of its officers on March 20.

The man was Michael Vann Hubbard.

Police said he was 58 years old and had no fixed address.

An autopsy showed that he died of a single gun shot, according to police.

"Investigators are currently reviewing surveillance video of the incident obtained from two separate sources," Vancouver police spokesperson Cst. Jana McGuinness said in a statement.

David Eby, executive director of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, has told the Straight the shooting and its aftermath has similarities to the 2007 Robert Dziekanski incident.

Yesterday (March 22), police confirmed that the two officers involved in the shooting were not armed with tasers.

Vann Hubbard was holding a box-cutter knife when he was shot by one of the officers.
