Early  Morning Double Homicide

Two men are dead and another was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries after an early morning targeted shooting on Foothills Boulevard near the intersection of North Nechako Road.   Mounties were called to the scene around 2:40am when they received a report of gunshots.  The two men killed were pronounced dead at the scene.  While the third is in hospital, police won’t say whether he is cooperating with investigators.  Mounties haven’t said whether they’ve determined a motive for the shootings, but admit situations like this are often related to the drug trade.  Meanwhile, there’s no confirmation that a mini-van police were searching along the Hart Highway at Houghtaling Road this morning, is connected to the double homicide.  Foothills Boulevard is closed from North Nechako Road to the Otway Road Overpass while police investigate.
