Man shot multiple times in lot behind Bamboo Grove
A 41-year-old man is expected to survive multiple gunshot wounds following what police believe was a targeted shooting at a Downtown Richmond restaurant near city hall Saturday night.
According to investigators, the victim was just leaving the restaurant near No. 3 Road and Anderson when he was shot by an unknown suspect.
An employee at a neighbouring business believes the shooting occurred in the parking lot directly behind Bamboo Grove. Customers who had parked their vehicles in the lot were not permitted to leave as those vehicles were deemed part of a crime scene.
When police arrived, they found the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
He was rushed to Vancouver General Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
According to police, he was listed in serious but stable condition and was expected to make a full recovery.
Richmond RCMP's serious crimes unit is now investigating, and trying to determine whether this incident was gang related.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
