VIDEO: One wounded by gunfire in Maple Ridge

Multiple shots fired

One person was wounded by gunfire in Maple Ridge on Saturday night, Aug. 1.

When Ridge Meadows RCMP officers responded to multiple reports of shots being fired from a vehicle near Selkirk and 223rd, they located evidence of a shooting and cordoned off the area.

Local area residents reported a black SUV was seen speeding along Selkirk firing multiple shots at another vehicle.

A police statement called it an “isolated incident” that did not pose a threat to public safety.

Shortly afterwards, a white Hyundai Sonata with its passenger window shot out arrived at Ridge Meadows Hospital with a person suffering gunshot injuries.

That victim was later transported to Royal Columbian Hospital in undetermined condition.
