Fail.

This is a thread for shootings, not a thread about anyone who has died.

This guy was not shot.

Shooting in Richmond
Quote:
RCMP in Richmond aren't saying much about a shooting this morning. It happened in an industrial area of Shell Road near Bridgeport where it's believed someone in a Mercedes was shot.

Police have taped off this massive industrial office complex. The back buildings are still under construction. Police are not confirming the shooting. But there is a large police presence and two ambulances were called to the scene.

Edit*
more details



A murder investigation is underway at a Richmond industrial park where a woman's body was found this morning.
The parking lot in a Shell Road industrial park is empty except for two vehicles.
One is a black pickup truck with its doors open and the other a dark, gray sedan with a woman's body inside.
Investigators have been here since 4:30 this morning and they are videotaping both vehicles, inside and out.
IHIT's Corporal Dale Carr is expected to be here shortly to give us more details such as whether the woman was shot.

METRO VANCOUVER - The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says one person has died in an incident at an industrial complex near Bridgeport Road and Shell Road in Richmond.

A woman phoned in at around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday morning after she saw a woman's body in a car parked in the Shell Road industrial area.

Global BC and other media are reporting that the incident was a possible shooting, but police would not confirm this morning how the woman died.

RICHMOND (NEWS1130) - RCMP now say a woman killed early this morning in Richmond likely died of gunshot wounds. Corporal Dale Carr says paramedics told police she had a "gunshot injury" but an autopsy will be needed to confirm the cause of death.

He also says the Asian woman in her 30's was well known to Richmond RCMP for criminal activity.

Homicide investigators were called to an industrial complex in the 2500 block of Shell Road in north Richmond at about 4:30 this morning, after a woman's body was found inside a car.

A person driving a pickup near the homicide scene is being questioned by police but Carr says it's too early to describe the person as a suspect.

Police also say it's still too early to link the incident to a series of shootings across Metro Vancouver that has claimed 20 lives since mid-January.

a good shooting post for a change


A group of would-be jewelry thieves got more bang than bling Tuesday when the jewelry store owner fired a bullet at them and scared them off.
The owner of Atson, a jewelry and gold shop at 290 Robson on the corner of Hamilton in Vancouver, was accosted by thieves shortly after opening his store at about 10:20 a.m.
Police spokesman Const. Lindsey Houghton said three suspects tried to rob the store and were scared off by an employee or owner who fired at least one shot at the assailants.
"At this point we believe there was possibly one shot fired. We can't confirm if there were any more than that," Houghton said, adding there were no reports of any injuries from the gunfire.
The store window glass was smashed in and investigators could be seen surveying the store's interior well into the afternoon yesterday behind yellow police tape.
Houghton could not say how much merchandise was taken.
The store, incorporated in 1995, is registered to Alice Yu, president, and May Yuk-Ming Ng, secretary.
The aborted robbery is the latest brazen daylight jewelry heist to hit Vancouver in recent weeks.
On April 1, three thieves struck Kitsilano's Costen Catbalue Goldsmith and Design in the 1800-block West 1st Ave. just before 11 a.m., one of them brandishing bear spray.
The thieves smashed display cases with a hammer and stole an undisclosed quantity of jewelry before escaping into a waiting vehicle, driven by a fourth suspect.
The car was abandoned a few blocks away. No one was injured.
Police yesterday said it was too early to tell if the two cases were linked or if there was some sort of jewelry-theft ring operating in the city.
In January, a chronic offender was arrested and charged with a heist at the Saatchi and Saatchi jewellers, also on Robson.
The store was cleaned out after someone cut a hole in the ceiling of a bathroom in a hall shared by the store and a business next door.
Martin James Weigelt, 42, was charged with stealing an estimated $500,000 worth of jew-elry.
"There could be any number of reasons why jewelry stores are having higher number of incidents," Houghton said.
"It could be the price of gold or the price of diamonds or other stones, or the economic downturn."

^ on that note, i have always wondered why, for robberies either for jewellery or bank, they always state "they stole an UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT".

Are they not allowed to disclose it or is there some policy regarding the store's privacy or something?
