Police attend 2 more reports of shootings on Saturday night in Metro Vancouver after deadly week
VANCOUVER -- Saturday evening saw more shootings in Metro Vancouver as police were called to two locations.
Although no one was injured, the reports of shootings come during a week of tumult in the region that saw several shootings, resulting in two deaths and the injury of an alleged money launderer.
RCMP were called to a Chevron gas station off Highway 1 around 8:30 p.m. at 232nd and 72nd in Langley, B.C..
Several uniformed officers investigated the scene. The shooting didn’t result in any known injuries but bullet holes could be seen on the side of the gas pumps.
Callers reported "two people shooting at each other," says an RCMP statement.
"Upon police arrival, officers quickly learned both shooters had already left the scene," continues the statement.
The Langley RCMP statement also says that "it does appear both parties were known to each other."
However, the statement also says that "descriptions of the shooters are still being confirmed and currently their vehicles can only be described as dark in color."
There were also reports of gun shots in Surrey, B.C., but the city’s RCMP said that when they arrived on the scene they found nothing.
Surrey RCMP told CTV News Vancouver that they got a call about the shots fired around 8:30 p.m. by Bolivar Park, which is near the Bridgeview neighbourhood, and just south of CN Rail’s Thornton train yard.
The past week saw two deaths and seven shootings over five days. This includes the shootings in Richmond on Friday night that sent two men to hospital. One is confirmed dead, and sources tell CTV News Vancouver that the other person who was injured is alleged money launderer Paul King Jin.
