<ul><li><p>Ling Su was at home theevening of June 13, strug-gling to put her two littleones to bed, when Christo-pher Alexander Serrano laybleeding in the street, just ablock away.Su hadnt heard anything</p><p>unusual, but she could seethe emergency vehicle lightsflickering from across theback alley while she was inthe shower.Never did it cross my</p><p>mind that it would be mur-der, a shooting, she said.Serrano was involved in</p><p>an altercation, possibly in-side a vehicle, at about 9:30p.m. in the 3900 block ofForest Street, just one streetover from Sus. Neigh-bours heard shots, policewere called, and someoneperformed CPR on Serra-no, but he was pronounceddead about an hour later inhospital.Su learned what hap-</p><p>pened from her husband,who heard about it on the11 p.m. news.Serrano, 29, was a self-</p><p>professed drug dealer whoslit a strangers throat withbox-cutters after an argu-ment at aVancouver night-club.The man survived,and Serrano spent twoyears in jail. Su has no ideawhy he was in her neigh-bourhood that night hishome address is in Co-quitlam.The killing left Su with a</p><p>sense of unease and a stron-ger desire to connect withher neighbours at the an-nual Spruce Street blockparty.
