Langley RCMP are seeking public assistance in piecing together events from early Wednesday morning that sent one man to emergency with multiple gunshot wounds.
Shortly after 1 a.m. on Nov. 11, a man arrived at Langley Memorial Hospital with gunshot injuries. Police believe it is related to a vehicle incident that occurred 10 minutes earlier.
At the intersection of Springbrook Drive and Glover Road, a white Dodge Avenger crashed through a concrete barrier and came to rest on the east side of the railway tracks, adjacent to Glover Road.
A dark-coloured vehicle, with an unknown number of occupants, pulled over near the collision site.
Several witnesses told police that a South Asian man said he witnessed the crash, however he left the scene in a minivan before police arrived.
The driver of the Avenger was seen walking away from the crash site.
Lower Mainland police dog services then located a 36-year-old Langley man, believed to be the Avenger driver, in the bush nearby and arrested him.
Police allege he is the one responsible for the gunshot wounds.
There are still a number of pieces missing from the investigation, however, and Langley RCMP are asking for witnesses to come forward to help provide the following information:
• How did the man with the gunshot wounds get to the hospital and who took him there?
• Who is the South Asian male who claimed to have seen the incident? Police wish to speak with him.
• Who were the occupants of the dark-coloured vehicle?
• What is the description of the dark coloured vehicle, including make, model, type (sedan or two-door) and licence plate number?
Anyone who is able to assist in the investigation is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
