One person has died, and another is injured after a targeted shooting in Richmond.

The victims were rushed to hospital Friday shortly after 7:30 p.m., following the shooting in the 9000 block of Capstan Way, according to a police news release on Friday night.

RCMP announced Saturday that one of the men had died of his injuries. 

Friday was the second night in a row that police responded to shots fired in Richmond.

Late Thursday night, there were reports of people in two separate vehicles firing at each other at a gas station near No. 3 Road and Blundell Road.

RCMP say there were no reports of injuries, and both vehicles sped away from the area. That incident is also believed to have been targeted.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken over the investigation and is asking anyone with information to contact 1-877-551-4448 or ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
