A woman shot in North Vancouver last Tuesday has died of her injuries.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said Tuesday that 32-year-old Ngoc Mai (Anita) Nguyen died in hospital Thursday, April 4.

Police have now identified a vehicle that Nguyen was driving around the time she was shot, a newer-model Volkswagen Passat.

Investigators are asking for dash cam and other video shot in the area between 9 a.m. and noon on April 2.

She was taken to hospital, where she was put on life support with what police called “non-survivable injuries.”

Police believe the shooting was targeted. Investigators have said they see no link to drugs or gangs but have not identified a motive.

It’s believed Nguyen worked at a food prep business called Feed Me Fit, located on the same block where the shooting occurred. The business was closed the day of the shooting.
