Police investigating after video surfaces of violent fight at Vancouver park

Posted: Updated:

Vancouver police are reviewing video of a violent fight recorded during a party at Frenchman's Bar Park Thursday night.

The video, which was posted on YouTube, shows two men fighting while a group of people cheers and yells. Eventually, one man is knocked out as a large crowd circles around them.

Police responded to reports of a disturbance around 8 p.m. Thursday and found around 500 people in the park.

While some people reported hearing gunshots, officers found no guns or physical evidence that shots were fired, according to police spokeswoman Kim Kapp.

Police are looking into a possible gang connection to the incident, since witnesses reported possible gang members being present, Kapp said.

Police made one arrest on a DUI charge and cited others for violating the park alcohol ordinance.

Most people were not cooperative and no one mentioned the fight, Kapp said.

Once the video of the fight surfaced, officers began a follow-up investigation. They are trying to identify the people in the video.

Police plan to increase their presence at the park in the coming days.
