RCMP are looking for witnesses to a shooting outside Richmond Centre mall on Monday night.

Mounties say they received multiple reports of shots fired at the mall, located in the 6500 block of No. 3 Road, around 10:20 p.m.

Several witnesses told Global News they heard as many as seven gunshots.

When officers arrived, they found a 35-year-old man suffering from what appeared to be gunshot wounds. He was sent to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses reported seeing shots fired by someone inside a two-door silver sedan. The vehicle then reportedly fled the scene.

About an hour later, Vancouver police responded to a report of a vehicle fire on Newport Avenue. Police say the vehicle matched the description of the sedan reported by witnesses in Richmond.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have been a witness, or who has dashcam footage, to contact RCMP.
