Teen shot, suspects sought

Richmond Mounties are investigating a shooting in North Richmond late Thursday afternoon that left a teenager suffering from a gunshot wound to his leg.

Richmond RCMP received reports around 5 p.m. of shots fired at Garden City Road and Capstan Way.

According to witnesses, one person, an 18-year-old boy, had been shot, and suspects fled the scene in a vehicle.

The victim, who is known to police, was taken to hospital and is in stable condition.

Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said Thursday night that at this early stage in the investigation, it isn't known if this was a targeted shooting, or if the incident is gang related. Richmond RCMP's serious crimes unit is investigating.
