A 28-year-old man has been shot dead at Vancouver international airport in Canada, in what police believe is gang-related violence.

The alleged killer escaped in a car with others, shooting at police as they went.

Photos from the scene show a bullet hole in the windscreen of a police car and another window shot out.

Police say that they are looking for one or more suspects. The airport has now reopened after closing temporarily.

The shooting happened outside the departures terminal at about 15:00 (20:00 GMT) on Sunday. Panicked travellers ran for cover, the Vancouver Sun reports.

Police caught up with the getaway vehicle, an SUV, but the police car was shot at by the escaping suspects in a busy street.
