- Homicide investigators identify victim in suspicious death in Langley
The attack happened outside the Browns Socialhouse restaurant near Willowbrook Mall just before midnight Friday.
Multiple people phoned 911 after hearing gunshots coming from the parking lot.
"We showed up and found a body beside the black Dodge truck, lying face down, head wound, deceased at the scene," said Mike Connaghan, who ran to the area from a nearby Tim Hortons.
Connaghan said one of the victims went back inside after getting shot.
"He was trying to get away and went back into the restaurant for help."
When police arrived, they found one of the men dead on the ground and the other man with gunshot wounds.
That man was taken to hospital, and IHIT says he is expected to survive.
Investigators know the identity of the deceased man but are not releasing his name pending notification of next of kin.
No suspects have been identified at this time.
"It is alarming that it would occur in a restaurant on a Friday night," said Cpl. Meghan Foster with IHIT.
"It's concerning to us and we're lucky no one else was hurt."
