The man arrested for a shooting in a Surrey convenience store is a Langley resident.
Harpal Dhaliwal, 30, of Aldergrove was arrested Friday on warrants for criminal negligence causing bodily harm, carrying a concealed weapon, unauthorized possession of a firearm, careless use of a firearm, and possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm.
The Jan. 7 shooting took place after two men walked into a Macâ€™s convenience store in Guildford, at 100th Avenue and 152nd Street. The men had arrived together in a black pickup truck at about 11:30 p.m., say Surrey RCMP.
At some point, one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the other. The victim was taken to a local hospital by Emergency Heath Services and is being treated for a non-life threatening wound.
Dhaliwal lives in Langley, but after the incident police were uncertain of his whereabouts.
Surrey Mounties thanked members of the public and the media for spreading the word during the three days they were searching for Dhaliwal.
