  • Man dies during shooting at a Langley intersection, IHIT takes over investigation

On Friday, January 7th, just before 2:00 p.m., Langley RCMP was called to the intersection of 88 Avenue and 202 Street after a report of a shooting was received. Upon police attendance, an adult male victim was located suffering from gunshot wounds.  The male has succumbed to his injuries.

Based on the investigative theory in this initial phase, this does not appear to be a random act. 

The area surrounding the scene will be cordoned off for a significant amount of time. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been called and will be working in partnership with Langley RCMP.

Police are currently in the evidence gathering phase, no further information will be provided at this time. Further details and media availability will be handled by the IHIT Media Relations Officer.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation can call the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
