A male victim is in hospital after a brazen daylight shooting outside a Port Coquitlam gym on Monday morning.

In a press release, Coquitlam RCMP said they received reports of multiple shots fired and when they arrived on the scene they found a man with gunshot wounds.

The shooting occurred at about 9:34 a.m. Monday, Dec. 7, in the 1500 block of Broadway Street, outside Westcoast Iron Gym.

Police say they believe the shooting was targeted, and fortunately no bystanders were injured.

A witness said she heard gun shots and saw four or five bullet casings on the ground outside the gym.

And while the victim’s condition is not known, the man was taken to hospital via paramedics who arrived on the scene.

Const. Deanna Law said the Major Crimes Unit with the Coquitlam RCMP is handling the case.

It is believed the shooter fled the scene in a black vehicle. The black vehicle was last seen heading northbound on Broadway Street. Police are asking drivers who may have been in the area at this time to review their dash cam video to see if they may have captured the vehicle involved.

Anyone with video or other information on this incident is asked to contact the Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550. Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477.
