Vancouver police have made an arrest in connection with a targeting double shooting in East Vancouver that caused a 31-year-old pregnant woman to lose her unborn child.

VPD has arrested 37-year-old Carleton Stevens of Surrey. Stevens was arrested just before 8 pm near the area of 154A Avenue and Fraser Highway in Surrey.

He has been charged with one count of attempted murder and one count of possession of ammunition or firearm contrary to a prohibition order and remains in custody.
