Police confirm the victim of a shooting in Richmond is 21-year-old Vancouver resident, Calvin Chi Hang Zhao.

Officers were called to the scene (on Ash St.) just before 9:30 p.m. and found a Zhao's body inside a Jeep as they were securing the scene.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says although it is early in the investigation, and while investigators work to determine the motive for the shooting, it appears the homicide was targeted.

"The selfish act of homicide is one that puts the public at risk, and creates an elevated level of concern for police. For this reason, we need those who have information, to come forward and contact us," said Cpl. Meghan Foster.
