One wounded in Langley shooting

Police are asking for tips and dash cam footage

One man was shot and wounded in a residential neighbourhood in Langley on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 21.

At about 7:30 a.m., Langley RCMP received calls about gunshots heard in the 20100 block of 84th Avenue, according to Cpl. Zynal Sharoom.

The officers found a person at the scene suffering from what is believed to be a gunshot wound, said Sharoom.

The victim was taken to hospital.

Blood and medical debris left by first responders was visible on the edge of the road in the neighbourhood of townhouses, as police investigated the scene later in the morning.

It appeared the victim had been shot in or near the driveway of one of the homes. RCMP had covered the license plates of an SUV near the scene.

“Officers remain on scene investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident but at this time there is no risk to the public,” said Sharoom.

Police are asking anyone with more information, or with dash cam footage that might shed light on the incident, to contact the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
