Updated: Man killed in Aldergrove shooting

The RCMP Integrated Homicide Investigation Team have identified Cory Kelly as the man killed in a Friday night shooting in Aldergrove.

Police received a 911 call that a man was shot near 16 Avenue and 272 Street around 9:30 p.m. On the way to the scene, officers were met a few blocks away by two men on foot. The men led police to a vehicle where 25-year-old Cory Kelly was found unconscious.

BC Ambulance Service took Kelly to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Sergeant Jennifer Pound with the IHIT said the shooting is not gang related, however, "It appears this shooting is as a result of an attempted break and enter to a residence containing a marijuana grow operation."

Pound says no arrests have been made. "We are currently interviewing many persons of interest for the break and enter and homicide."

Police said Kelly had a criminal record in Ontario.

IHIT is asking anyone with any information about this shooting to call the tiplines at 1-877-551-IHIT(4448) or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
