RCMP need help to piece together Nov. 11 shooting

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.

To leave an anonymous tip, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), text BCTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637), or write to www.solvecrime.ca or www.facebook.com/metrovancouvercrimestoppers.
