In a recent development within the ongoing BC Gang Conflict, the Mission RCMP has connected a violent shooting incident to the dispute. The event unfolded on December 6, outside a Superstore located at the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Wren Street. The victim, a 41-year-old male, sustained multiple gunshot wounds while inside his car.
The incident, which is now a key focus of police investigations, occurred when the suspect, operating a newer model Jaguar SUV, opened fire at the victim. This attack deviates from initial reports that suggested a Dodge Durango was involved. Clarifying this, the authorities noted that the Durango, driven by a woman accompanied by her daughter, hastily exited the scene following the gunshots.
Later that night, in what appears to be a calculated move to evade capture, the suspect vehicle was discovered abandoned and set ablaze in Surrey.
The victim, who is currently receiving medical care in a hospital, is known to have prior interactions with the police. His condition is serious but stable.
As the search intensifies, the Mission RCMP is urging witnesses or anyone with information about the grey Jaguar SUV or the shooting event to come forward. They can be contacted at 604-826-7161. No arrests have been made yet, but the investigation is active and ongoing, with police piecing together the events of that fateful day.
