Vancouver police investigate 'targeted shooting'
Vancouver police are investigating another possible gangland killing, after a man was found shot to death in an SUV in east Vancouver on Saturday night.
Investigators are calling the latest incident a "targeted shooting."
Police were called to a restaurant parking lot just before midnight, after receiving reports of shots fired, said Vancouver police Const. Jana McGuinness.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found the body of a man slumped over the steering wheel of a white SUV.
The shooting came just hours after police announced new charges in the gang execution of six men in a Surrey, B.C., apartment building eighteen months ago. Among those killed were two innocent bystanders who were in the building at the time.
The city has been rocked by a bloody gang war, with dozens of shootings -- and eighteen deaths -- in the past four months, mostly in battles over drug turf.
The continuing violence has prompted a huge public outcry for police to crackdown.
