One wounded in Aldergrove shooting incident

RCMP want to interview witnesses who helped victim

Two men who came to the aid of a shooting victim in Aldergrove are being asked to contact Langley RCMP.

At approximately 5:30 p.m. on Sunday. June 6, officers received a report of shots fired in the 26200-block of 60th Avenue and arrived to find a 50-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds, said Cpl. Holly Largy, media relations officer with Langley RCMP.

The victim, a Langley resident, was known to police and the shooting is not believed to be random, Largy said.

His injuries were described as non-life-threatening and he was said to be in stable condition in hospital.

A vehicle was seen leaving the area, Largy added, but noted details were still forthcoming.

Investigators would like to talk to two South Asian males who stopped to offer assistance to the victim very shortly after the shooting.

They are asked to contact Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 to speak with investigators.

BC Emergency Health Services confirmed they responded to the shooting.

“Several paramedic crews were dispatched to the scene,” said Sarah Morris, a spokesperson with BC EHS.

“One patient was transported to hospital in critical condition.”

RCMP closed the road and the Integrated Forensic Identification Services attended to collect evidence.

By Monday afternoon, 60th Avenue between 256th and 264th Streets was reopened.

Anyone with information that might assist with this investigation is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
