A 23-year-old Vancouver man has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Kyle Vincent Gabriel, following an investigation by the Vancouver Police Department.

Yasin Rashid was formally charged today, and will make a brief appearance in Vancouver Provincial Court later this morning.

VPD officers were called to 1125 Pendrell Street, in the city’s West End, shortly after 8 p.m. on September 10th, following an incident between two males. Gabriel, 29, was found injured in the residence and later died at hospital.

Rashid was arrested the next day on unrelated charges and has remained in custody since that time.

This was Vancouver’s seventh homicide of 2019.
