Shot dead in broad daylight

Police in Nanaimo are investigating a brazen daytime shooting that left one man dead Saturday.

The man was found just before 11 a.m. in a parking lot of Hawthorne Corner Apartments at Wakesiah Avenue and Second Street.

RCMP said the shooting appeared to be targeted and the victim was known to police.

A witness tells CTV News they heard several gunshots and one of the bullets hit his house.

“About six shots probably went off, I looked out our bedroom window and I could see there was some car with holes in it … looked by my door and there was actually a bullet hole by the door to my place,” said Caleb Johanson.

Police believe a nearby vehicle fire may be tied to the shooting.

The victim's name has not been released.
