A man who was shot in Chilliwack earlier this week has died, police say.

Investigators identified the victim as Keith Baldwin late Thursday. Anyone who has information about his activities on Monday night is asked to call police.

A grievously injured Baldwin, 27, was discovered near Fletcher Street and Yale Road at around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.

He was taken to hospital and placed on life support, but his injuries were so serious that police called in the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team to take over the case.

The shooting appears to have been targeted, and police say there is no risk to the public.
