Mia Deakin, daughter of Real Housewives of Vancouver star Jody Claman, shot in a drive-by shooting

Vancouver Police are investigating a gang-related drive by shooting in East Vancouver that left a well known Vancouver woman caught in the crossfire.

At around 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 8, a man drove by in an SUV and fired multiple shots at a couple  at the Chevron gas station on East Hastings near Vernon drive.

Global News has confirmed the identity of the shooting victim as Mia Deakin, the daughter of Jody Claman, one of the stars of the “Real Housewives of Vancouver.”

“It is still early in the investigation and the motive for the shooting is not known, but police believe the attack to be targeted,” said Constable Brian Montague with the Vancouver Police.

Police believe the man was the target, and that Deakin was an unintended victim.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

2 shootings in just 24 hours is apparently a big deal in Vancouver.

What's up with the Canada shootings now? Or maybe they've just always happened, but they're only now being posted on, but still.
invisible_cunt 9th-Jun-2014 10:31 am (UTC)
this was a drive-by though, not a mass shooting
i'd say 90% of gun related violence in canada is gang related. hence why it's rare for a crazed white male goes on a rampage. the tragedy in the maritimes only got global attention because it happened so soon after the last mass shooting in the states

and i'm pretty sure east hastings is a dodgy part of vancouver.

a lot of the shootings in canada are gang related.
msbombtastic 9th-Jun-2014 03:32 pm (UTC)
yeah as most others said, it's usually gang related. there's been a few here in Toronto, like at York University, that are just random but (thankfully) not many mass school shootings from what I know.

Mia is an insufferable creature who makes a lot of bad choices, but I hope she recovers and becomes nicer as she grows older.

Good Christ. It's like she melted it.
invisible_cunt 9th-Jun-2014 10:32 am (UTC)
isn't east hastings the dodgy part of vancouver?
landwarinasia 9th-Jun-2014 10:44 am (UTC)
Yeah, it's one of the dodgier parts. But at this point all of the "sketchy" areas of Vancouver are like two blocks away from super posh areas. I used to volunteer at night in East Hastings and never had any trouble. There's a lot of drug use and prostitution but tbh I was always told to be more worried about gang violence in the suburbs.
sarahvma 9th-Jun-2014 03:53 pm (UTC)
Yay for gentrification. I feel bad for tourists, though, who occasionally stumble on Pigeon Park after shopping for $400 plaid shirts half a block away.
onadarknight 9th-Jun-2014 10:46 am (UTC)
The only really sketchy part of Vancouver is the Downtown Eastside. East Hastings/East Van in general is decent.
saintvlas22 9th-Jun-2014 10:54 am (UTC)
There's like, 3 specific blocks on the Downtown East Side you should avoid. Aside from that though, it's pretty okay (though I may be biased since I grew up there). It kinda helps that the Strathcona area has become pretty yuppiefied lately, though.
