RCMP officers discovered a deceased man in the Northgate Village plaza parkade on North Road.

One man is dead after what police are describing as a targeted shooting in a Burnaby mall parkade Saturday afternoon.

Police responded to shots fired in the underground parkade of the Northgate Village business plaza just after 5 p.m., according to a Burnaby RCMP news release.

Inside the parkade, officers discovered a deceased male.

About 15 minutes later, police responded to a vehicle fire in the area of Bainbridge Avenue and Greenwood Street, according to the release.
