Prince George’s top cop blames drug gangs “vying for power and control” for a triple shooting that killed two men and injured another on a city street early Wednesday morning.

Gangs ‘vying for power and control’

“Many of the shootings and murders that we’ve had are directly related to drugs [as does] this right now because of the level of violence,” said RCMP Superintendent Warren Brown, Prince George’s detachment commander.

Brown wouldn’t identify the victims but said they were known to police and had been targeted.

Officers responding to a report of shots fired discovered the three men inside a dark-coloured car near North Nechako Road and Foothills Boulevard at 2:40 AM Wednesday morning.
