Charges in cafe shooting

A Surrey man has been charged with several serious offences after a shooting at a coffee shop on Dec. 23.

RCMP say Son Thai Lu entered the coffee shop on 105th Avenue just before 9 p.m. and shot a man before fleeing the scene.

Lu, 34, was known to the victim and is also known to police.

“The shooting appears to have been motivated by a disagreement between the two men,” says Cpl. Scotty Schumann.

The victim received serious injuries and is recovering.

RCMP located Lu on Wednesday. He has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and pointing a firearm.

“There is no known link to the ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict and we’re thankful no one else was injured.”

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
