“The incident was frightening for other shoppers in the parking lot, many of whom were in the process of loading up groceries into their vehicles before heading home for the night,” Mohr said.

“One such shopper, a young mother out shopping with her niece, had just finished putting her groceries into the back of her vehicle when the shots were fired nearby. She and her niece quickly jumped into her vehicle and sped off to safety. As they drove off, the tailgate of her Dodge Durango remained open, and items including a box of baby diapers, some baby clothes and a poinsettia flew out into the parking lot.”

Mission RCMP’s victim services unit has been engaged and is available to help anyone who witnessed the shooting.

Anyone with information, including any possible sightings of the suspect car that night, is asked to contact Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161.
