Officers fired their weapons and hit the suspect. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Many people woke up to an emergency alert on their cellphones, warning them of the shooting and advising them to stay inside.
“At this time we don’t know the motive behind this deadly incident, nor if there was any relationship between the deceased suspect and the victims. We ask that public continue to assist us by providing any information that may be able to assist our investigation. Significant resources have been deployed to Langley to assist with determining what took place and why and we appreciate the public’s patience and cooperation as we deal with multiple locations throughout the Langley area,” said BC RCMP Chief Superintendent Ghalib Bhayani.
The BC RCMP has notified the IIO of the fatal shooting, who will be investigating police actions.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is also running its own investigation concurrent to the IIO investigation and is asking anyone with information to contact police.
