VANCOUVER -- A man was shot and killed at the Vancouver hotel where the US women's soccer team is staying ahead of the Olympic qualifying tournament, The Vancouver Sun reported.

 According to police, the shooting happened at about 8:45pm local time Tuesday night at a bar inside the Sheraton Wall Centre. The victim was a man in his 20s.

No arrests have been made in the case, which according to The Sun was the city's first murder of 2012. No one else in the hotel was injured in the attack.

"Saved by our instant yoga session. Was about to walk to starbucks when all hell broke loose in the lobby of our hotel! Life is precious...," US goalie Hope Solo wrote on Twitter.

A spokesman for the US national squad said no one affiliated with the team witnessed the shooting.

The US team will play the Dominican Republic on Friday in the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament.
