One Sooke shooting suspect in custody

Vehicle recovered in Langford, Josh Lafleur still at large

One person believed to be connected to this week’s drive-by shooting in Sooke has been taken into custody.

RCMP have also located and seized the vehicle involved in the shooting in Langford.

Wednesday evening RCMP searched a different Langford residence, but no one of interest was located.

Sooke RCMP, in conjunction with West Shore RCMP and the Island District General Investigation Section, continue to focus their efforts on locating Josh Lafleur, who is believed to be the shooter. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Lafleur is the only suspect to be named in connection with the Ella Road shooting. The names of the other two suspects are being withheld until charges are sworn.

Anyone with information on Lafleur’s whereabouts are asked to not approach him but call 911. Anyone with information relating to this case are asked to contact the Sooke RCMP detachment at 250-642-5241 or through CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
