BURNABY RCMP’s Investigative Support Team, with the support of Serious Crime Section and frontline officers, is investigating a shooting that has left a victim with non-life-threatening injuries.
On Saturday, September 18, at approximately 4:30 p.m., Burnaby RCMP received a report of possible shots fired in the area of Sprott Street and Norland Avenue. It was reported that the suspect fled the area in a dark-coloured SUV.
Frontline officers responded and located a 33-year-old man with what was believed to be a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The man was transported to hospital.
Police are requesting anyone who may have witnessed this incident or potentially have dashcam video in the area of Sprott Street and Norland Avenue between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. to contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999.
“It is unsettling to see such blatant disregard for public safety,” said Cpl. Mike Kalanj on Sunday. “At this time, investigators do not believe this incident is related to the Lower Mainland Gang Conflict. Our officers are working diligently to identify and locate the people or person responsible.”
