Pretty much can tell you it won't. Be willing to bet my left nut on that.

VANCOUVER — Another man is dead in a targeted shooting outside a corner store at 70th and Marine in Vancouver.

The man appears to have gotten out of a silver BMW to go into the store and was shot when exiting. His body lay beside the car at 11 p.m. Monday as police cordoned off several blocks.

Shots rang out about 9:40 p.m., neighbours said.

There were two batches of gunfire, up to 12 shots in all.

At least 12 police vehicles were on the scene. Ambulances responded, but left once they saw the victim was dead.

The body lay near a service bay of a gas station next to the store. The BMW — an older model convertible — was still sitting with its engine running two hours after the shooting. Cheryl Dycke heard the shots and a woman screaming.

Dycke had just been leaving for the store from her apartment across the street.

“It is quite shocking. I thought it was a robbery,” said Dycke.

She said more people could have been hit as the store is very busy.

“I thought it was fireworks at first,” she said. "I hope they catch the guy."

Police canvassed low-rise apartment buildings across from murder scene looking for witnesses.

Many lined 70th Ave. watching the action unfold.

Traffic was being diverted off the busy thoroughfares through neighbourhoods.

The shooting comes after the brutal slaying Friday of Wendy Ladner Beaudry near Pacific Spirit Park and the shooting death Saturday night of a 24-year-old Vancouver man.

The victim in that homicide was David Phong Quoi Banh, who was found slumped over in the driver’s seat of a white SUV in an east Vancouver restaurant parking lot on Saturday night.

"It appears to have been a targeted shooting, but it’s too early in the investigation to confirm that," police said in a statement earlier Monday. "Mr. Banh was not known to police."

Monday night's death marks Vancouver's 12th homicide of 2009 and the region's 31th.
Like wtf? Fireworks on Marine & 70th? News flash; Celebration of Light is in July and I doubt you'll hear it anyway since it's at Spanish Banks ma'am.

Vancouver Police are now confirming what CKNW reported earlier.
One man has been shot dead while sitting in a SUV in the Boston Pizza parking lot at Grandview Hwy near Rupert St.
Cst. Jana McGuinness says it looks like a targetted incident but it's still too early to make any gang links.
Police are asking for witnesses to come forward.

He implicated one of the Bacon brothers. And I think a couple of other people as well.
