One man is in hospital after he was shot during a violent home invasion in Aldergrove Wednesday night.
Langley mounties were called to the 26500 block of 29th Avenue after 911 calls reported hearing gunshots shortly before 8 p.m.
Police say that’s when the 27-year-old occupant was shot. The suspects then fled.
Although it is early in the investigation, Cpl. Craig Van Herk said police believe the incident was targeted. He did not provide a possible motive.
Van Herk says, ”Any time we have gunshots it's alarming, but when we have gunshots going off in a residential area, going into a home where you know people are going to be – this is 7:30 in the evening, people are going to be home – it's not acceptable.”
On Thursday, RCMP said there's more than one suspect in the incident.
"We've got reports from witnesses, from the victim himself that there are multiple suspects ... at least three but possibly more that came in and then fled," said van Herk. "No further descriptions at this point."
The officer said the victim is known to police, but the incident hasn't been linked to any other crimes.
