The RCMP has not identified the victim of what appears to be a targeted shooting in South Burnaby.
According to Vancouver Sun reporter Kim Bolan, the bullets struck Ronaldo Lising, a 59-year-old full-patch member of the Hells Angels who lives in the area.
Lising was conscious and breathing when police arrived on the scene near Patterson Avenue and Hurst Street around 11:20 a.m. He's been taken to hospital for treatment.
"Burnaby RCMP’s Serious Crimes Unit is leading the investigation into this shooting," Cpl. Mike Kalanj said in a Burnaby RCMP news release. "Our officers are also working closely with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) to determine if this shooting has any ties to the Lower Mainland gang conflict or organized crime."
Kalanj added that police believe this shooting was targeted.
Lising has been convicted in the past on firearms, drug, and assault charges.
