Update: Vancouver Police Investigating a Targeted Double Shooting

Update:  June 15, 2018  |   June 1, 2018  |  May 21, 2018

Vancouver Police are continuing their investigation into a targeted shooting in an East Vancouver apartment this morning that has sent a man and woman to hospital with serious injuries.

Just before 6 a.m., an unidentified suspect went to the home of a 31-year-old Vancouver woman on Industrial Avenue near Scotia Street and shot her. The victim called 9-1-1 reporting that she had been shot and the suspect had left. Officers arrived on scene minutes later to discover a 23-year-old Langley man had also been shot in the same apartment.

The man suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and the woman is in critical condition.

“It’s still very early in the investigation, but initial information leads us to believe this was a targeted shooting, unrelated to gang conflict,” says VPD’s Constable Jason Doucette.

Detectives from the VPD’s Major Crime Section are asking anyone with information about this shooting, or who was in the area around the time of the incident, to call them at 604-717-2541 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
