UPDATED: Suspected shooter arrested in Milner

A crash and a shooting are believed to be linked.

Langley Mounties are looking for more witnesses to help them investigate a shooting in rural Milner.

Just after 1 a.m. on Nov. 11, a man appeared at the Langley Memorial Hospital Emergency room with multiple gunshot wounds.

The victim had serious injuries but is expected to survive, said Cpl. Holly Largy , spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Investigators believe the wounded man is related to an incident that took place 10 minutes previously at Sprinbrook Drive and Glover Road.

A white Dodge Avenger crashed through a concrete barricade and came to rest on the east side of the nearby railroad tracks, said Largy.

A dark-coloured vehicle, believed to be linked to the Avenger, pulled over near the collision site.

The driver of the Avenger was seen to walk away from the crash site. Lower Mainland Police Dog Services officers found him hiding in the bush nearby. He was not injured.

After piecing together information form witnesses, police believe that the Avenger driver, a 36-year-old Langley man, was responsible for the shooting.

He was arrested and remains in police custody, Largy said.

“We believe that there is a drug component,” Largy said the possible motivation for the incident.

While several people have spoken to police about what they saw at Glover and Springbrook, there was also a witness, a South Asian man, who may have also seen the incident but left before police arrived. Investigators would like to speak to him to gather more information.

Police are also trying to find out more about the dark-coloured vehicle that stopped nearby, and would like to speak to anyone who could tell them more about the car’s make, model, license plate, or other details.

Anyone with information on the shooting and surrounding incidents is asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
