      A man in Chilliwack is dead following what the RCMP is calling a targeted shooting. He’s the fifth person in Metro Vancouver to die in a suspected homicide in less than a week.

      The latest incident occurred at approximately 4:20 a.m. last Sunday (September 3). Police have released few details but said the man was found with an apparent gunshot wound in the 9500 block of Williams Street, near Yale Road.

      Barely more than 24 hours earlier, on September 1, RCMP officers found two people dead—a man and a woman—in Langley near the intersection of 232 Street and 64th Avenue.

      Before that, on August 31, police responded to reports of gunshots and found a deceased male in Abbotsford near the intersection of Gladwin and Huntingdon roads.

      One day earlier, on August 30, RCMP officers found another deceased male in Surrey who was shot while sitting in the driver’s seat of a parked car in the 6300 block of 166 Street.

      On August 28, the Straight reported on a series of recent shootings across Surrey that resulted in stray bullets causing property damage. That report covered events that occurred throughout August and late July.
