Shooting victim’s claim was fake

Langley RCMP are trying to figure out why a man made a false claim of being shot early Thursday morning in Aldergrove

Langley RCMP are trying to figure out why a man made a false claim of being shot early Thursday morning in Aldergrove.

Police were first called at around 4 a.m. Jan. 21 to attend a residence in the 27100 block of Fraser Highway where a male had arrived and indicated he had been shot.

Officers attended and located the victim, a 43 year old male who appeared to have suffered an injury to his shoulder. He was transported to hospital for treatment of his non-life-threatening injuries.

Police were led to believe the ‘shooter’ may be in the area and out of an abundance of caution, the Lower Mainland ERT Team was called to attend to ensure the safety of the public.

However, prior to the ERT Team’s arrival, police were advised by hospital staff that the injuries suffered by the victim do not appear to be consistent with being shot.

The request for ERT was cancelled and investigators are continuing with their investigation, and are looking for witnesses to this incident.

If you have information that might assist with this investigation, please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Should you need to remain anonymous, please call CrimeStoppers. There are four ways to leave an “anonymous tip” with Crime Stoppers: phone 1-800-222-TIPS (8477); website www.solvecrime.ca; text: BCTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637); or Facebook www.facebook.com/metrovancouvercrimestoppers.
