LANGLEY, B.C. — Police have identified two people who were killed in the Vancouver suburb of Langley, where two others were also wounded in a series of shootings on Monday.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says 60-year-old Paul Wynn was killed outside a supportive housing complex and 43-year-old Steven Furness was shot dead at a bus loop.

IHIT says Wynn's family describes him as someone who worked hard for everything he had.

Police shared a message from Furness's family saying they hope his tragic death "will put a spotlight on the plight of the homeless and vulnerable."

Police say the families of the two surviving victims, a man and woman both aged 26, have also been contacted.

They say both remain in hospital, the woman in critical condition and the man with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police have not established a motive for the violence, but say a man they shot dead on Monday, 28-year-old Jordan David Goggin, was the killer.
