When police arrived to the club, Loft Six, in the city's trendy Gastown district they found the two men dead inside the building, one of whom was a bystander.

Of the five wounded, at least one is in critical condition after being shot in the back.

A third man was found inside a crashed car about 20 blocks away from the nightclub. He was revived at the scene, but later died in hospital.
