Residents of a Coquitlam neighbourhood are in shock today (Sunday) after a brazen drive-by shooting.
On Jan. 10 at approximately 1:03 a.m., Coquitlam RCMP responded to a shooting call in the 1400 block of Kingston Street.
Upon arrival, officers located one male victim who sustained wounds from being shot. Multiple suspects were seen fleeing the area in a vehicle. Shortly afterwards, officers located a car on fire in the 3500 block of Gislason Avenue and is believed to be connected. The victim was taken to hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
It is unclear whether there is any connection to the Lower Mainland gang conflict, said a police news release.
“Evidence is currently being gathered and assessed with aim to further the investigation and identify those involved,” said the release.
Anyone with information, dash cam video or CCTV video are asked to contact the Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file 2021-820.
