A major police presence descended on a Burnaby Cactus Club restaurant Thursday evening over what RCMP have confirmed is a shooting.
Several RCMP officers and other emergency responders convened at the Byrne Road Cactus Club just off Marine Way after 8 p.m. At least one helicopter was also monitoring the scene.
Witnesses who spoke to Global News said they saw at least two victims get shot at in the parking lot in front of the restaurant.
RCMP would only say that frontline officers and the Gang Team are investigating a shooting. Police did not say how many victims there were or what condition they are in.
The parking lot in front of the Cactus Club, which is part of a shopping centre, is closed to the public.
More to come…
