Police say Kam was born in Hong Kong and moved to Calgary with his family as a teenager, then to Vancouver on his own this past summer.

There’s still no word on any possible relationship between Kam and the victims. Police have not speculated on a motive.

At the time of the killings, police had urged members of the public to be vigilant, as it was unclear if the attack was targeted or random.
