Bouncers injured in Maple Ridge pub shooting

The men were working at the Haney Public House and had just escorted two men off the property.

Two doormen were shot early Sunday after tossing a patron out of a downtown Maple Ridge pub.

The men were working at the Haney Public House and had just escorted two men off the property when one allegedly returned a few minutes later to open fire on a crowd of people just after 2 a.m.

Pub owner Yvan Charette said his employees are recovering from injuries to their lower extremities, but had no further comment.

“The police are doing their thing, so we’ll leave it there for now,” said Charette, who was celebrating his birthday in Pitt Meadows that night.

He added there were many witnesses to the incident.

Ridge Meadows RCMP rushed to the popular pub at the corner of Lougheed Highway and the Haney Bypass after multiple shots were fired at a group of people who were standing just outside the entrance.

“The potential for this incident to be more serious was definitely there,” said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.

“The police officers who were first on scene described the scene as being quite chaotic.”

People who know the doormen said both were shot in the leg.

Police said the men were treated at the scene by paramedics and released.

No one has been arrested.

“Investigators feel this is a targeted shooting, and are asking for witnesses who have not yet spoken to police to contact the lead investigator,” said Dunlop.

“Ridge Meadows RCMP will provide more information when it is known.”
