IN the early morning hours of Monday, Langley RCMP responded to multiple reports of shots fired. There were several victims in different scenes throughout the City of Langley, and one scene in the Township of Langley.

At 7:20 a.m., the Police Emergency Alert was updated as investigators believed that the lone suspect was in custody.
