Man killed in Richmond, B.C., shooting

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 08 Jan, 2021
  • Man killed in Richmond, B.C., shooting

A man has died in a suspected targeted shooting in Richmond, B.C.

RCMP say the victim was found in a park in the Steveston neighbourhood at around 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

A statement from Richmond RCMP says the man died a short time later in hospital.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken over the case.

On Friday, authorities identified the victim as 29-year-old Vancouver resident Anees Mohammed, and said they believe his killing was targeted.

"Mohammed was known to police and we believe he was targeted for murder," Sgt. Frank Jang of IHIT said in a news release.

The deadly attack is the first in Richmond in 2021 and comes just two days after a targeted shooting in Surrey killed 24-year-old Gary Kang.

Homicide investigators confirm Kang had known gang affiliations, but they are not linking his slaying with the latest violence in Richmond.
