Man shot in the face

A Surrey man was shot in the face early Sunday morning outside the Holiday Inn at Cambie and Shell roads.

Richmond Mounties responded about 1 a.m. to a report of a shooting.

Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said preliminary information suggests that two groups of males became engaged in a conversation in a parking lot near the hotel.

"As the conversation concluded, and one of the two groups was departing, a gun was produced and at least one shot was fired resulting in a 23-year-old Indo-Canadian male suffering a shot to the face," Turley said.

The victim was taken to hospital and was listed in stable condition.

Richmond's serious crimes unit continues to investigate.

The group with whom the victim was associated does not appear to have any gang or drug-related files.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212, or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
