The second of two apparent shootings took place near Granville Avenue and No. 4 Road in Richmond on Monday

A 64-year-old Richmond man is the suspect in custody connected to Monday’s double shooting incident near two schools.

Richmond RCMP said the man is not connected to the ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict and that there is “no further threat” to public safety.

However, police are keen to get their hands on any dash-cam video as shooting investigation continues.

Areas of particular interest are:

1) In the vicinity of No. 4 Road and Finn Road at approximately noon;

2) On Granville Avenue between No. 4 and No. 5 Road at approximately 10:30 a.m. and again at approximately 12:50 p.m.; and

3) On South West Marine Drive and Blenheim Street, in Vancouver, at approximately 2:30 p.m.

Anyone with dash-cam video of traffic in these locations during these times on Sept. 13 is asked to call the Richmond RCMP non-emergency line at 604-278-1212 and quote file number 2021-25173.

The Richmond News reported earlier this week how Mounties were investigating the first incident at around noon near Dyke and No. 4 roads, close to the south arm of the Fraser River.

However, while officers were at that scene, police received a report of a second shooting at around 1:10 p.m. on Granville Avenue, near No. 4 Road, which is close to MacNeill secondary and Anderson elementary.

About two hours later, a man believed to be connected to the shootings was taken into custody in Vancouver, with no injuries.
