Nanaimo RCMP are investigating a suspicious death in the city’s south end.
First responders got the call to the Harbour View Manor building on Nicol Street shortly after 7 pm last night.
Neighbours say the police response came after they heard a commotion.
Chris Hadley was in the building when he heard a woman he believes to be the victim’s wife or girlfriend screaming ”He’s not breathing’ and ‘Who could have done this?”
The incident happened in a second-floor unit.
Nanaimo RCMP’s forensic team is inside the unit and officers are canvassing the neighbourhood.
Phoenix Caine was walking by the building with his fiance when first responders arrived. Caine says they stopped and were watching the building when someone walked out “and immediately said ‘I think somebody just got killed.'”
The victim’s name has not been released.
