Shooting was targeted

Richmond RCMP are investigating a targeted shooting.

Shortly before 10:30 p.m. Thursday, police responded to the 7000 block of Westminster Highway, where a young male was found suffering from a gunshot.

The 20-year-old Surrey man was rushed to hospital.

“We believe that this shooting was targeted,” said Cpl. Shawn Hazell. “We have a number of officers investigating this matter, which we believe occurred near Lynas Lane sometime last night. The victim is known to police and has been less than co-operative with us thus far. Though the investigation is in the early stages, we are canvassing the area for video surveillance or any information or evidence that could assist us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-278-1212 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
