A man has been charged with first-degree murder after a shooting at an office Christmas party in Vancouver Friday.
Police allege Eric Allen Kirkpatrick, 61, opened fire at the TallGrass Distribution Ltd Christmas party, killing Benjamin David Banky, 40.
Banky was the CEO of TallGrass Distribution Ltd., a natural health products company.
At least a dozen employees had been celebrating when the gunman, who had been recently laid off, entered the party and began firing a gun, according to Vancouver Police spokesperson Const. Tim Fanning.
