Update:  June 15, 2018  |   June 1, 2018

Vancouver Police have arrested a 37-year-old Surrey resident, Carleton Stevens, for the targeted double shooting that occurred in the early morning of May 18th at an East Vancouver home on Industrial Avenue near Scotia Street.

Stevens was arrested last night just before 8 p.m., near the area of 154A Avenue and Fraser Highway in Surrey. He has been charged with one count of attempted murder and one count of possession of ammunition or firearm contrary to a prohibition order. Stevens remains in custody.

The 31-year-old woman who was shot remains in serious but stable condition, while the second victim, a 23-year-old Langley man, is recovering from his injury.

The investigation remains ongoing and investigators expect that more criminal charges will be laid. As the matter is now before the courts, there is no further information to release at this time.
