The 23-year-old victim was hit in the torso and arm with an arrow and the suspected shooter, a 59-year-old man from Nanaimo, turned the weapon on himself.

Witnesses called 911 and transported the victim to the hospital. He has since been released.

Th suspected shooter was also taken to hospital, but died several hours later. A crossbow was found with the man.

“The two individuals knew each other, but their relationship is uncertain,” said Mission RCMP Const. Amanda Harnett, adding the men were related, but not by blood.

The younger man was an employee of the restaurant, she added. “We’re just learning now what the motive was.”

Police say the incident does not appear to be gang or drug related. The case has been turned over to the coroner’s office.
