Shots were fired in downtown Richmond yesterday in what appears to be a targeted incident.

Richmond RCMP attended the 4500 block of No. 3 Road around 4:35 p.m. yesterday (Dec. 3) after reports of shots fired. Police found evidence that confirmed shots had been fired, and learned from witnesses that there was a physical altercation during which a man allegedly discharged a firearm.

The parties involved were described as South Asian males, who all fled the area in vehicles: a black Jetta, white Audi and white Mercedes.

“This is a busy time of the day in the downtown core,” says Cpl. Adriana Peralta. “It’s fortunate the reckless actions of this individual did not result in an innocent bystander being injured.”

Richmond RCMP Watch General Investigation Unit has conduct of this file. Anyone with information is asked to call Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 and quote file number 2020-33038. Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
