Cops ID botched home invasion shooting victim
The latest shooting victim in Metro Vancouver was known to police, but the cops won't say if he had gang connections.
Twenty-four-year-old Shane Allan Messent was killed after a home invasion went wrong for the attackers yesterday in south Vancouver.
Messent showed up at the home with another man but ended up being shot dead, while his companion fled, only to be arrested last night in Surrey.

One man inside the house was also shot and is recovering in hospital from non-life-threatening injuries.
So far, police have released few details about the incident. They have not yet given any indication as to what Messent and what the other man might have been looking for.
