One man is facing a second-degree murder charge after a 40-year-old woman was killed in a shooting in Langford on Friday.
Friends have identified the woman killed as 40-year-old Angela Dalman, a single mother who leaves behind her teenage son.
Anthony Singh Dheensaw, 35, is charged with one count of second-degree murder in the death of Dalman.
He is also facing another charge of attempted murder of Derrick Oke with a firearm. Police said the attempted murder was against a 41-year-old man.
He is in custody and is due back in court on March 16, 2020 at the Western Communities Courthouse.
West Shore RCMP said they were called to the shooting outdoors near the 800-block of Arncote Avenue in Langford shortly after 9:30 p.m. on March 6. When police arrived, they found Dalman had been shot. She later died of her injuries.
Police said the suspect, identified as Dheensaw, left the scene before police arrived and was later arrested Saturday morning by the Saanich police K-9 unit.
