At least 2 suspects sought in latest Coquitlam shooting: RCMP

Mounties say it’s believed at least two suspects are wanted in connection with Coquitlam’s latest shooting.

The RCMP says a man and a woman, both in their 20s, remain in hospital after they were found shot in a car in a parking lot around Barnet Highway and Pinetree Way Sunday night.

Officers were called to the area just before midnight Monday, and shut down the area well into the day. Investigators say the shooting — which was the fourth in the city since the start of the year — was likely targeted.

Shortly after initial reports of the shooting, the RCMP says a silver Chrysler 200 was found on fire in the area of 180 Street and Golden Ears Way. Both incidents are believed to be connected.

“Police are asking anyone who may have observed a silver Chrysler 200 in the parking lot area of Barnet Highway and Pinetree Way in Coquitlam between 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 11, 2024 and 12:30 a.m. on Monday, February 12, 2024 to contact the Coquitlam RCMP,” said Acting Officer in Charge of Coquitlam RCMP Insp. Darren Carr.

Carr also addressed ongoing concerns about safety, given the number of shootings within the same area in such a short time.

“We are exploring every investigational avenue while working with assisting agencies as crime is borderless and can be interconnected in multiple jurisdictions,” he said.

Police are also asking anyone who may have seen something or has video from the parking lot near Coquitlam City Centre to reach out to the Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2024-3605.
