A man was shot multiple times in an underground parking lot in the 5600-block of 201A Street in Langley, B.C., on Monday, RCMP confirmed.
The victim, a 27-year-old man from Langley who is known to police, was rushed to hospital with critical injuries.
Police said the shooting is believed to be targeted, but that it was too early to say if it’s linked to the recent Lower Mainland gang conflict.
Since the end of December, there have been six gang-related shootings in Metro Vancouver, with five of them fatal.
The following day, 29-year-old Anees Mohammed was shot dead in Richmond’s Steveston neighbourhood. Police have said he also had gang ties.
