Officers sent an alert to residents describing the suspect as a white male wearing overalls and a camouflage shirt.

The Globe and Mail reported yellow police tape was placed around Langley’s sandwich shop and car park at the time of one shooting.

Over one of the crime scenes, a black tent was put up, thought to be for forensic purposes.

Nearby, near the Langley Centre, bullet holes were found in the windscreen of an unmarked black police vehicle.

The forensic tent was just a few meters from the black SUV. A white car was also near the site.

Orange cones were placed nearby to surround a blue sleeping bag, a bicycle and a pair of shoes. A piece of clothing and a pair of shoes were also taped in the middle.
