One dead in shooting


One man is dead after a shooting Tuesday night in Maple Ridge.

Police were called shortly after 10:15 p.m. to reports of shots fired in the 10300 block of 240th Street.

Officers found 33-year-old Trevor Koehler with multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) was called to the scene and investigators are looking for a light coloured -- possible white or cream -- compact import car, believed to be a Honda, Toyota or Acura.

"At this early stage of the investigation we can say Trevor was the victim of a targeted attack and this was not a random occurrence.  IHIT continues to work with the Ridge Meadows RCMP to determine why this shooting occurred and who is responsible," says Sgt. Adam MacIntosh of IHIT.

Koehler had no criminal record and was not known to police.

The shooting does not appear to be gang related at this time.
