Burnaby RCMP officers are looking for tips from the community as officers investigate a shooting that has left a victim with non-life-threatening injuries.
On Saturday, Sept. 18, at approximately 4:30 p.m., Burnaby RCMP received a report of possible shots fired in the area of Sprott Street and Norland Avenue. It was reported that the suspect fled the area in a dark-coloured SUV.
Officers responded and located a 33-year-old man in the parking lot of the Scotia Barn ice rink with what was believed to be a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The man was transported to hospital.
Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed this incident or potentially have dash-cam video in the area of Sprott Street and Norland Avenue between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. to contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999.
“It is unsettling to see such blatant disregard for public safety,” said Cpl. Mike Kalanj of the Burnaby RCMP, in a statement. “At this time, investigators do not believed this incident is related to the Lower Mainland gang conflict. Our officers are working diligently to identify and locate the people or person responsible.”
