Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers search around rows of luggage carts as screens block off an area of the sidewalk after a shooting outside the global departures terminal at Vancouver worldwide Airport, in Richmond, British Columbia, Sunday, May 9, 2021.

Paramedics responded and according to officials, the situation has been "contained" and the airport is open and safe with flights still operating.

The Richmond RCMP said officers were called to YVR and "intercepted (a) getaway vehicle", but were shot at by the suspects. No arrests have been made, but he says investigators are looking for at least two suspects. Police later found a burning vehicle about 28 kilometers (17miles) away.

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

The man was fatally shot near the departure terminal at Vancouver's airport, which is in neighboring Richmond, British Columbia.

Traffic cones are blocking off a section of the worldwide and Canada departure areas at the airport, and police have screened off a section near the terminal entrance, but neither airport officials nor RCMP will give more details about the incident. Most of the shops in the area were shut down.

Emergency responders received a call at about 3 p.m. PT about a police incident at the airport, the Provincial Health Services Authority said. It said the airport remained open.

Roberts also said that the possible connections to gang activity was being investigated as well as ties to a pattern of shootings in public areas in the region.

Roberts says it's too soon to link this shooting to a series of other brazen, daylight killings in the Lower Mainland.

So far no one has been reported to have been transported to area hospitals but one male victim was repotedly killed.

The incident disrupted major traffic routes and police are asking people to stay away from the area.
