Gunfire at Ikea Richmond parkade


By Cassidy Olivier, The ProvinceDecember 11, 2012 9:13 PM




Richmond RCMP investigate reports of shots fired in the Ikea parking lot on in Richmond on December 11, 2012.


Richmond RCMP said it was miraculous that no one was injured Tuesday after gunfire broke out at the Ikea store in the 3300-block Jacombs Road.
Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said Mounties received several reports of shots fired at around 4:30 p.m.
She said that by the time investigators arrived, the suspects had already fled the scene.
“Miraculously no one was injured,” Turley said in a statement.
“There was also no property damage.”
Turley said the shooting happened in the store’s parkade.
The area was blocked off by yellow police tape and investigators remained on scene for several hours Tuesday evening.
Despite the shooting, the store maintained its regular hours, an Ikea spokesperson said.
Turley said investigators are still trying to determine the reasons behind the shooting and who was involved.
As the investigation continues, police are asking with information is asked to contact the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212.
Anonymous tips can be made through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222.8477.

Kids with real guns? Wannabe gangsters maybe?

Whoever they were, they were amateurs if nobody (they intended to injure) was injured, luckily for everyone else present.

Violence has seen more than a few young souls, many Indo-Canadian, found dead, their bodies sometimes abused before and after death, in and around Richmond, South Surrey, south Vancouver... It may not be related, but its doubtful it is not related to similar gang activity. I used to live and work in Richmond, and would prefer a more concerted effort to clean up the gang activity and drug trafficking which leads to such violence.

A Vancouver gang squad detective was quoted as saying "the clock is ticking for all these guys!" IE; its going to happen again, as the Ikea gunfire indicates.

http://www.warriorsr...storyofviolence

This article above lists many who have lost their life in the gangs once inhabited by Bindy Johal, the Dosanjh brothers (a friend of mine worked in a shop across the street from one's murder and was first on scene as he died). Guys have been shot at weddings, in streets, in front of their homes, in drive by's, left in ditches abused, in nightclubs, at Metrotown, temples...

http://www.theprovin...l#axzz2EpCwiOid

This article suggests it is getting worse.

Anybody have any solutions?

I'm not too sure, but sadly its actually relevant.
That is the Abbotsford Police Dept. Christmas campaign to stop gang violence.

Because our tougher gun laws prevented this shooting? Oh wait, it didn't.

The issue here isn't guns and whether or not they should be controlled more or otherwise, since it's probably 99% of the gun violence in Vancouver are caused by illegal guns. Criminals won't be obeying the laws here.

That being said, this is more of a cultural/societal problem. Why are there groups of young, testosterone driven males shooting at each other in the first place? Where are the families in all this? Is there anything more the police can be doing?
Maybe we ought to start tar and feathering these gangster wannabees, along with public spanking or something.

So would a lot of people. Start auctioning the rights to smack them and also sell eggs/rotten stuff to throw at them. VIP seatings, TV contracts.

Might earn enough to help balance the budget, lol.

Sounds like gangsters are running amok in this province. Police can't, won't or simply turn a blind eye until innocent bystanders are effected. I'm not surprised anymore and if this continues I will be packing up my bags and moving to Japan or Switzerland. Those are places where there are like no guns or gangs. This province is turning into a serious sink hole, getting worse and worse by the day!

Where's your sense of humour?

There's nothing wrong with making fun of and laughing at gangsters who get killed. Too bad some overly sensitive and PC mod had to kill my gangsters shooting predictions thread game that I made a few years back. Cry me a fricking river!

You know those major cities that are murder capitals and cesspool's.... guns are illegal, normal citizens are not armed and the thugs run around with the guns.


......Only select very few small towns in "Merica" have open carry laws.

Uh, there's lots of guns in Switzerland.

Anyway the real problem here is the big league organized crime that runs this province, the gangs are just a symptom.

Most comparable cities actually have a far larger gang problem but few have the organized crime and corruption issues that this region does.

Incident: Operation Resolution

Abbotsford Police Send Greeting Cards to Offenders

Abbotsford December 10, 2012

This holiday season a number of people may be surprised to learn that the Abbotsford Police Department has added them to its mailing list. Prolific offenders, property offenders and persons known for drug and gang activity, will be receiving specially created cards from the APD through an initiative called Operation Resolution. Our hope is that the cards serve as a reminder to the recipient that they have an opportunity to make a different choice and that they can in fact “resolve” to do so.

The image on the card is of Chief Rich (aka Santa) in tactical gear with an accompanying quote from Mary Blochowiak that says “You are always only one choice away from changing your life”. The additional text states “We believe it is never too late to make a better choice for your life. For the sake of your family & for your own sake, consider 2013 the year you choose a new & better life. Make your New Year’s resolution now! We’re here to help.”

A phone number is also included which will allow callers to connect with the APD. The phone will offer the following recorded greeting:
“Hello. You have reached the Abbotsford Police Department’s Resolution line. If this is an Emergency, hang up and dial 9-1-1. If you are calling because you want to make a change in your life, thank you. Your phone call is important to us and we would like to speak further with you. So please leave your name and a contact number and we will return your call. Again, thank you for making this life changing choice and taking the time to call us. We look forward to speaking with you.”





Our Mission:

To make Abbotsford the safest city in B.C.



The Abbotsford Police Department realizes that Operation Resolution is different. We wanted to do something different but to also stay true to the spirit of the holidays and the New Year. We sincerely believe that the holiday season is a time for reflection for many people in our community. A positive change can reap rewards and benefits far beyond the impact to a single individual. The APD supports those positive changes year round.

Careful, you might be called American for using logic when it comes to pointing out criminals don't follow laws and don't care about gun restrictions.
