A Vancouver Police investigation has led to an arrest and charges in connection with a downtown shooting that left a bystander with serious injuries on April 3.

Justin Delaney Littlewolfe, 32, has been charged with one count of discharging a firearm and one count of aggravated assault for his alleged role in the shooting, which occurred following an altercation near Homer Street and West Pender Street.

VPD officers responded to reports of shots fired around 7:50 p.m. on April 3, and found a 46-year-old man suffering serious injuries. The victim was treated at hospital and is now recovering.

The shooting suspect fled as police were responding, but was later identified by VPD investigators and was taken into custody on April 12.

Police do not believe the victim was the intended target of the shooting.

Littlewolfe remains in custody.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to contact the Vancouver Police Major Crime Section at 604-717-2541.
