“At this time, this appears to be a targeted shooting, with no clear ties to the Lower Mainland gang conflict,” Mission RCMP Const. Harrison Mohr said.

“The shooting took place in an industrial area where the majority of businesses were closed at the time. There is not believed to be any ongoing risk to the public.”

Police said they had not made any arrests, and that a portion of Mission Way was closed for much of Saturday for crime scene investigators.
