Richmond: Shortly before 9:30 pm on January 10th, 2017, Richmond RCMP officers responded to the 7000 block of Ash Street after receiving several reports of gun shots.

As multiple officers secured the area, a deceased male was discovered inside the cabin of a late model Jeep sport utility vehicle.

This does not appear to be a random act.

The surrounding area will be cordoned off for a significant amount of time as police investigate.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been contacted and has taken conduct of the investigation. They will be working in partnership with the Richmond RCMP.

Police are currently engaged in the evidence gathering phase. No further information will be provided at this time.
