The RCMP's Major Crime Unit is investigating after a 29-year-old man was shot in the neck on Friday.

Police say the incident happened Friday evening at a house on Delestre Avenue in Coquitlam. Investigators believe it was not a random act.

The wounded man, who has since been released from hospital, is well known to police.

"We have some suspicions that it might be gang related," said RCMP Staff Sgt. Mark McCutcheon.
