THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is asking for dash cam video from drivers who were travelling along 72nd Avenue between 232nd Street and Highway 10 from around 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday after a shooting that left a man dead.
On May 15 at 9 p.m., Langley RCMP received several calls about a shooting in the parking lot of a gas station at 232nd Street and 72nd Avenue. When officers arrived, they found a man with gunshot wounds on the ground. The victim was transported to hospital but succumbed to his injuries.
Soon after the shooting, the Langley RCMP was notified of a burning dark-coloured Dodge pickup truck in the 8300-block of 196th Street. Investigators say they would like to speak with anyone that has information about this vehicle.
Police said it is early in the investigation but this appears to be a targeted incident. Investigators are working to determine a motive.
“We need those who have information about this incident to please come forward,” said IHIT Cpl. Frank Jang on Wednesday.
Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551- IHIT (4448), or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
