Langley RCMP is investigating an early morning shooting that took place in the 5700 block of 200 Street.
Police received multiple calls just before 4 a.m. Tuesday morning of a shooting in the area. On attendance, police said a lone adult male victim was located suffering from a non-life-threatening gun shot to his lower leg.
Officers could be seen at the Good Knight Inn motel on the third floor, and the motel’s parking lot was blocked off behind yellow police tape.
“It is believed the shooting is targeted,” said RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy.
“The investigation is in it’s infancy and very few details are available at this time.”
The victim was a Langley man, and he was known to police, Largy said.
Police were in the process of interviewing the victim Tuesday morning, she said.
As far as police know, this shooting is not related to the murder of an 18-year-old in the parking lot of a Walnut Grove strip mall on Friday afternoon.
Eighteen-year-old Julian Moya Cardenas was shot and killed in a targeted shooting at the intersection of 202nd St. and 88th Ave. in Walnut Grove.
A statement from the regional Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said the deceased victim was known to police.
Anyone with information that might assist with the investigations, is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
