The man who died in hospital after a police standoff outside the Starlight Casino in Queensborough has been named as Mehrdad Bayrami, 48, of Richmond.
The B.C. Coroners Service issued a press release Tuesday, identifying Bayrami as the man shot Nov. 8 after a five-hour long incident outside the casino, which led to the man suffering a gunshot wound to the body.
Police had responded after reports of shots being fired in the casinos parking lot.
Bayrami was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital, but died 10 days later.
The newly formed Independent Investigations Office has been tasked to investigate the shooting.
