Richmond serious crime unit had called in the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team to investigate the overnight shooting death of a 35 year-old Caucasian male from the Lower Mainland.
At approximately 1230 AM on January 11, 2007 Richmond RCMP were called to the intersection of Shell Road and Westminster Highway after a male was discovered slumped over the wheel of his SUV. Once on scene it became apparent that the male was suffering from several gunshot wounds, he was taken by ambulance to Vancouver General Hospital were he succumbed to his injuries several hours later. At this point investigators do not believe that the incident has any links to the Thursday January 4, 2007 shooting spree in Richmond.
