A man accused of shooting at two bouncers after being turfed from a Maple Ridge pub early Sunday is facing charges of attempted murder.
Ridge Meadows RCMP arrested Cody William McKenna Tuesday two days after a brazen shooting outside the Haney Public House.
McKenna, 25, is now facing charges of attempted murder, uttering threats, assault with a weapon and several firearms related offences.
He has been remanded in custody. Police said McKenna has a criminal record and is known to police.
“This type of incident is not a common occurrence in Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows, and police have treated this file as a top priority since it happened,” said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.
“Ridge Meadows RCMP’s Serious Crimes Unit has been working tirelessly on this serious incident and it has resulted in the arrest of our prime suspect.”
According to police, McKenna was escorted out of the pub by bouncers but returned a short while later and fired a gun into a crowd of people gathered at the entrance.
Two doormen were both injured in their lower legs. Police said they are still recovering from their injuries.
