A shooting in Maple Ridge has sent one person to hospital, according to Mounties.

Ridge Meadows RCMP responded to reports of the shooting in the area of 222 Street and 123 Avenue in Maple Ridge just after 2:30 p.m on Saturday.

When police arrived, they saw two vehicles that had been involved in a collision.

The driver of one of the vehicles was suffering from gunshot wounds. Police say he was taken to hospital by BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS).

Someone that was in the area at the time of the event told CityNews that around 2:30 p.m. Saturday, they heard one vehicle strike another in the intersection of 222 Street and 123 Avenue. They then saw someone come out of one of the vehicles with a gun and shoot into the other vehicle.

As of around 6:30 p.m., the person said, police were still on the scene.

BCEHS confirmed to CityNews that they received a “medical incident” call just before 3 p.m. at that location.

Peter Darbyshire, communications officer with Provincial Health Services Authority, tells CityNews they received a “medical incident” call just before 3 p.m.

“We responded with two ambulances and paramedics cared for and transported one patient to hospital,” said Darbyshire Saturday evening. “I don’t know the condition.”

Police say they believe this incident was targeted and that there is no risk to the public.

This is an ongoing investigation, Mounties say.

Anyone with any information or dashcam or CCTV footage from the areas of 123 Avenue and 222 Street as well as in the 20800 block of 123 Avenue is asked to call the Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251.
