One person was killed and two others injured after yet another brazen shooting in Metro Vancouver, this time outside a Burnaby Cactus Club restaurant Thursday night.
On Friday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) identified the victim as Jaskeert Kalkat, a 23-year-old who was affiliated with gang activity.
Two other people, a man and a woman, were also targeted in the shooting, IHIT said Friday. They suffered severe injuries but are expected to survive.
Several RCMP officers and other emergency responders convened at the Byrne Road Cactus Club in the Market Crossing shopping complex just off Marine Way after 8 p.m.
A body could be seen covered with a tarp next to a vehicle parked outside the restaurant. Over a dozen bullet holes could be seen littering the vehicle.
Video taken by witnesses showed first responders pulling the body of a young man from the same vehicle and laying him on the pavement.
