On April 23rd 2019 at approximately 11 am, the West Shore RCMP responded to a report of a shooting that took place outdoors near the Happy Valley Market located at 3431 Happy Valley Rd in Langford. Police believe there were two vehicles involved in this incident and both fled the scene southbound on Happy Valley Rd.
Police were already investigating an unrelated collision that took place at Kelly Rd and Veterans Memorial Parkway, when one of the suspect vehicles, a white Kia SUV crashed into the existing collision.
“As our officers were already on scene, they were able to quickly and safely arrest one suspect as well as seize a firearm from the vehicle,” said Cst. Saggar, West Shore RCMP Media Liaison Officer.
The second vehicle, a brown Cadillac sedan was recovered on Leila Rd in Colwood. Police are still trying to determine what is the involvement of the second vehicle and its occupant(s).
Police would like to speak to the occupant(s) of the brown Cadillac sedan and ensure their well-being. One occupant of the brown Cadillac sedan is described as being a Caucasian male in his 30’s who was last seen on foot in the area of Royal Colwood Golf Club.
“We are asking the occupant(s) of the brown Cadillac sedan to come forward and speak to us, we need to know if you are okay,” said Cst. Saggar, West Shore RCMP Media Liaison Officer.
At this time investigators believe this is a targeted and isolated incident. At this point there is nothing to connect this incident to another shooting that happened in Langford approximately two weeks ago.
If you have information regarding this incident please call 911 immediately to report what you know. You can also report anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
