Shot to death: targeted

A murder victim found in a vehicle with gunshot wounds has been identified by police as a 45-year-old man from Burnaby.

Police are saying his death is a homicide and believe the murder was targeted.

Coquitlam RCMP received numerous calls of shots fired in the area of Sylvan Place and Riverview Crescent Friday night, just after 10 p.m.

Officers found Donald Kelly inside the vehicle. He was taken to hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is trying to determine Kelly’s activities leading up to the homicide.

Shortly after the gunshots were heard, police were notified about a burning dark-coloured sedan located about two kilometres away, on Mariner Way.

“Investigators have determined that the burned vehicle was a 2018 grey Chrysler 300 and would like to speak with anyone that has information about it,” said Cpl. Frank Jang.

Police said there is no evidence to link the death to other recent homicides or reported acts of violence.
