Police say several men with gang connections were involved in a late-night shooting Monday in the Vancouver suburb of Surrey, just a day after a prominent gangster was killed in Kelowna.

RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen said one man suffered minor injuries in the targeted attack around 10: 30 p.m.

A 32-year-old man, who is known to police, was getting into the driver's side of an SUV when someone fired six to eight shots into the vehicle, police said. The man was not hit by bullets, but he suffered lacerations from flying glass or debris.

"At this point, our victim and his associates are unco-operative and, based on their identity and our intelligence on their background, they are known to have gang affiliations," said Thiessen.

The suspect fled in an unknown vehicle and no arrests have been made.

"We have no reason to believe this is any way related to the Kelowna incident that happened two days ago, but we're certainly looking at that, but nothing indicates that's the case here," said Thiessen Tuesday.

Jonathan Bacon, a member of the Red Scorpions gang, was gunned down near a Kelowna casino on Sunday. Hells Angel Larry Amero and Independent Soldier James Riach were also wounded.
