UPDATED: Aldergrove stabbing involved drug-dealing dispute

An air ambulance landed at Aldergrove's Parkside Elementary on Tuesday afternoon after a possible stabbing took place.



An air ambulance landed at Parkside Elementary on Tuesday afternoon after a reported stabbing took place. Three ambulances, several fire trucks and police were at the scene.

Around 2:15 p.m., Langley RCMP were called to the 3200-block of 272 Street where a 19 year old male had been stabbed in the back near his vehicle, said spokesperson Corporal Holly Marks.

The incident took place in a church parking lot

“Very preliminary investigation is now underway and police believe the victim was in his vehicle with four other associates when a second car arrived and one male exited. The suspect broke a window on the victim’s vehicle with a metal pipe (possibly a crowbar) resulting in the victim exiting his vehicle. A confrontation resulted and the 19 year old was stabbed in the back,” said Marks.

“The suspect fled in his vehicle and BC Air Ambulance arrived to transport the stabbed male to hospital. He is currently in serious but stable condition.

“The parties involved appear to be known to each other and all have some level of involvement in street level drugs,” said Marks.

Police will continue to investigate and attempts are currently being made to locate the suspect.

The school district is on spring break so the building didn’t have any students there at the time.
