The Burnaby RCMP have made an arrest in relation to this morning's shooting.
Shortly after 7:30 a.m., the Burnaby RCMP identified and located an individual they believed to have been involved in the 4:10 a.m. shooting on Dubois Street, in between Joffre Ave and Boundary Rd.
A 43-year-old Burnaby man was arrested at a residence in Burnaby, away from the location of the shooting. He remains in custody pending further investigation.
The victim of the shooting, a 25-year-old Surrey woman, is recovering in hospital after being treated for gunshot wounds. The victim's injuries are now believed to be non-life-threatening.
We are happy to report that the victim is in stable condition, says Corporal Brett Cunningham of the Burnaby RCMP. She is speaking with police and cooperating with the investigation.
We believe this to be a targeted and isolated incident and have no information to suggest the shooting is involved with the Lower Mainland gang conflict. At this time, we do not believe there is an ongoing risk to public safety.
Burnaby RCMP Serious Crime Unit continues to investigate the incident and examine the events leading up to the shooting.
Mr. Randhawa was not known to police. “Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends, as they now start to deal with their loss,” says Inspector Guy Leeson, head of Investigative Services for Delta Police.
