Springfield’s 11th Annual Jazz and Roots Festival Begins Point Molate in Richmond on track to become an East Bay Regional Park

Police in Richmond, British Columbia, are seeking witnesses to a serious road rage incident in which a car passenger allegedly pulled out a gun and shot the driver of a delivery truck.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) of Richmond said the driver of the van was not hit in the shooting Friday evening at the intersection of Alderbridge Way and Lansdowne Road, but was injured by glass fragments in the vehicle’s window.

According to police, the victim was driving a white Mercedes van when a white Kia cut him off.

As the driver of the van pulled up next to the Kia and yelled at it, police said a person in the passenger seat of the Kia pulled out a gun and began shooting.

The Kia was last seen heading east on Lansdowne Road.

“This was a reckless and brazen act that could have resulted in serious injury or worse to the victim or any pedestrian or motorist in the area,” said spokeswoman Adriana O’Malley.

O’Malley advises drivers to react with caution if they are harassed by another driver on the road.

“Try not to argue with the other driver because unfortunately you don’t always know how the person will react,” she said.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Richmond would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the shooting or has dashcam footage from the area between 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
