RICHMOND, B.C. — Richmond RCMP have identified the man killed in what they call a bold and brazen weekend shooting.

Police say 56-year-old Amarjit Singh Sandhu died in hospital after being shot Saturday evening.

Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound says the shooting happened in a very public setting and called the act selfish and cold.

The incident occurred in the south end of the city.

Police say the shooting appears to be targeted and that no other people were injured.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team are at the scene collecting evidence and speaking with witnesses.
