Man fatally shot in Maple Ridge parking lot Saturday afternoon

At about 4:30 p.m., a man was shot in parking lot near a gym on the 22600-block of Lougheed Highway.

“First responders arrived and found one man suffering from gun shot wounds,” said Sgt. David Lee of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.

“Paramedics rendered treatment however, the man was pronounced deceased at scene.”

Sunday morning, IHIT identified the victim in the shooting as 41-year-old Darr Khunkhun from Maple Ridge.

“Darr Khunkhun does not have a criminal record,” Sgt. Lee said. “The shooting appears targeted, but its connection to the Lower Mainland gang conflict remains to be determined.”

Investigators have identified a red Honda 4-door sedan with a sun roof as the suspect vehicle.

Police are canvassing the area for surveillance video, and have asked anyone who has dash-cam footage from 226 Street and Lougheed Hwy around 4:30 p.m. Saturday to reach out to police.

“We are seeking this vehicle and its occupants, but warn you to not approach them,” said Sgt. Lee. “If you think you’ve seen this vehicle driving or parked, call the police.”
