Langley RCMP are investigating a Friday evening shooting near a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant that has left one man in “grave condition.”
The police were called at about 9:35 p.m. on Feb. 7 to the parking lot of Langley Crossing Shopping Centre in the 6300 block of 200th Street for a report of a shooting, explained Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy.
“Upon police attendance, an adult male victim was located in located suffering from what appear to be gunshot wounds,” she said.
He was taken to hospital.
According to a witness on scene while removing the victim from the vehicle his foot came off the brake and the vehicle, which was still in drive, began to lurch forward nearly injuring several first responders and bystanders. BCAS quickly loaded the victim into an ambulance for transport to hospital. He appeared to be suffering from serious gunshot wounds to the head, the witness said.

The area surrounding the scene will be cordoned off for a significant amount of time.
