It's a sad story: a man shot and killed in the prime of his life in a public place. Two men, actually, two public places. Both in Port Moody.
The deaths are tragic on their own but the fact that these shootings occurred in busy locations where innocent people were at risk make them doubly horrific.
On Monday afternoon, 34-year-old Randynesh Raman Naicker of Burnaby was fatally shot just steps from a busy PoMo Starbucks.
On May 30, Gurbinder Singh Toor, 35, of Surrey, was killed at the PoMo recreation centre on his way to a ball hockey game, with hundreds of people in the vicinity.
These senseless killings are bad enough, and should be a wake-up call to young men and women thinking of getting involved in drugs or gangs.
The fact that the killers appear unconcerned about the risk to innocents is both sickening and scary.
