Shooting in broad daylight in Burnaby kills one man

BURNABY (NEWS 1130) – A shooting in the middle of the day on a quiet street in a North Burnaby neighbourhood has left one man dead.

Some neighbours heard shots, others were out gardening or walking their dogs, either way, no one expected this to happen here.

“People know each other,” says one neighbour. “They may not know each other by name but they know their dogs and all their dogs names.”

Neighbours say the victim lived in a basement suite. He came outside around 11:00 am, a car drove up, shot him, stopped then fired more shots before speeding off.

A commercial was being filmed across the street. One crew member reportedly ran over to try and do CPR.

IHIT says the shooting appears to be targeted.
