U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Was in Separate Wing Of Hotel Doing Yoga When Deadly Shooting Occurred in Lobby
When a deadly shooting occurred inside the Sheraton Wall Centre hotel lobby on Tuesday in Vancouver, the U.S. Women’s soccer team was not far away. In fact, they were in the same hotel. According to the Vancouver Sun, a man is his 20s was shot multiple times and killed. No players or staff from the U.S. team witnessed the incident, but the shooting occurred a bit too close for comfort as Hope Solo shared with us on Twitter:
“Saved by our instant Yoga session,” Solo wrote. “Was about to walk to Starbucks when all hell broke loose in the lobby of our hotel! Life is precious…”
Fortunately, the team was in a separate wing of the hotel when the shooting occurred and no players or staff are believed to have been near the lobby. The incident was supposedly a targeted one, but still frightening for the soccer team nonetheless. There have been no arrests and no information is known about any potential suspects. Thank God for yoga.
