Nanaimo RCMP say a homicide at a coffee shop in the city’s north end Saturday morning was random.
Police were called to the Buzz Coffee House at 4890 Rutherford Road around 9 a.m. Saturday on a welfare check.
Officers arrived to find a man dead. They arrested a second man at the scene.
“Investigators are confident that based on the evidence collected to date, there was no connection between the deceased and the individual arrested at the scene,” Nanaimo RCMP spokesperson Reserve Const. Gary O’Brien.
