It was a scary night Thursday for people packed into a pub in Richmond when a masked man armed with a shotgun assaulted another man.
No shots were fired but witnesses say the armed man hit the victim with the butt-end of his gun before taking off.
It happened at the Pioneer Pub, at 10111 No 3 Road, which was hosting a memorial service at time.
A large police presence had the area shut down for hours as they talked to witnesses and looked for evidence.
Shortly after, Richmond RCMP and Vancouver police descended on a White Spot on Marine Drive in Vancouver.
A number of people were arrested, including two men who say they were the victims of alleged racial discrimination.
They were released without incident but say they were doing nothing wrong and were targeted by police.

More to come.
