Following two shootings this week, Coquitlam RCMP want to reassure the community that they are fully investigating both incidents. Investigators have established that both shootings were targeted. There is no evidence to suggest there is any ongoing risk to the public.

We are appealing to the public to provide any footage that we have not yet received, including CCTV from local residences and businesses.

Coquitlam RCMP Officer in Charge, Superintendent Keith Bramhill, acknowledged, It is unusual to have two incidents like this in such a short space of time. Our investigators are working around the clock gathering evidence and determining if there are any connections with other gang-related shootings in the Lower Mainland. We are working with our policing partners to enhance investigative steps by sharing intelligence.
