Homicide investigators scour Langley, B.C., neighbourhood after suspected attack

·1 min read

LANGLEY, B.C. — Members of a Metro Vancouver homicide team are focused on a pockmarked car and casing-littered street as they investigate a suspected deadly attack in Langley, B.C.

An online post from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team confirms its members have joined Langley RCMP officers probing what happened in a residential area of the municipality.

A tent is set up over an idling Honda Civic with numerous holes in its windshield and the area beside the car is shrouded from view while dozens of evidence markers dot the street nearby.

RCMP are also investigating at least one burning vehicle in an area about 12 kilometres away in South Surrey, but haven't said if it is linked to the scene in Langley.

There have been several deadly shootings in Metro Vancouver over the last month, including one in Surrey targeting a 14-year-old boy.

Officials with the homicide team have said the earlier murders were related to the ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict and more details about the overnight attack are expected later.
