Police to respond to targeted shooting in Courtenay

A 50-year-old man was shot shortly after midnight Friday in a targeted shooting at a home at 1775 Arden Road in Courtenay.

“The circumstances behind the shooting is still under investigation at this time – it’s still early in the investigation,” said Gardner. “It is believed that everyone is known to each other – it is a targeted shooting. There is no risk to the public at this time, however, there have been no arrests made.”

The Comox Valley RCMP Serious Crime Unit is leading the investigation.
