RCMP probe Richmond drive-by shooting after car found torched in Vancouver

A man was taken to hospital with serious injuries

Police are looking for witnesses in what appears to be a drive-by shooting in Richmond Monday night after a burned-out vehicle was later found in Vancouver.

RCMP said a man was shot at about 10:20 p.m. in the 6500 block of No. 3 Road in front of the Richmond Centre mall.

The 35-year-old was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Witnesses told police they had seen a two-door silver sedan drive by with someone inside, shooting.

An hour later, police in Vancouver found a car matching that description on fire in the 2100 block of Newport Avenue.

“We understand this is unsettling for the entire community and want to assure our residents that at this time, our investigators have reason to believe that the victim, who is known to us, was targeted,” said Insp. Keith Bramhill.

“We are asking anyone who may have been a witness or may have been driving in the area and have dash-cam video to please call us.”
