Everything changed in a second on a downtown Vancouver street corner last week.

Jay Johnstone was standing on the corner of Burrard and Nelson streets around 5 p.m. on Aug. 29, minding his own business and “totally not paying attention” when he heard a commotion.

Johnstone said police were called and he and the third victim gave statements to officers. He was also told that the third victim ended up at St. Paul’s Hospital.
