A man is in hospital after being shot outside the McDonald's restaurant at Brentwood mall Saturday night.

Burnaby RCMP received a number of calls about shots fired at about 8:30 p.m. When officers arrived they found a man with gunshot wounds.

He was taken to hospital where he is recovering from serious, non-life-threatening injuries, said Staff Sgt. Ghalib Bhayani.

Witnesses reported seeing two people running from the scene. "Additional investigation has identified possible suspects," Bhayani said.

Investigators will be canvassing witnesses and seeking surveillance video footage.

While the McDonald's was open, the rest of the mall was closed at the time.

"It appears to be a targeted shooting, this is not a random incident."

According to media reports, the victim is 51 years old. Before he was shot he was to meet with two men, who are both now considered suspects.
