ON Monday, just after 3:30 p.m., Langley RCMP were called to Willowbrook Mall after a report of shots fired was received. Police located one adult male victim suffering from gunshot wounds.
The male has been taken to hospital for treatment of his potentially life-threatening injuries.
Police said that based on the investigative theory in this initial phase, this did not appear to be a random act.
The area surrounding the scene will be cordoned off for a significant amount of time. Langley RCMP Serious Crime has assumed conduct of the investigation.
Police said they are currently in the evidence gathering phase and no further information would be provided at this time.
Shortly after 4 p.m., Langley RCMP were called to a rural Aldergrove berry farm for a report of a vehicle fire. It is yet to be determined if this vehicle fire is related to the Willowbrook event.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation can call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. Anyone in the area is asked to review their dash camera footage to see if they have video of the events around the shooting.
