Memorial started for mother fatally shot outside Langford home

35-year-old suspect arrested in Saanich Saturday morning

A memorial has been started for a Langford woman who was shot and killed in the 800-block of Arncote Avenue Friday night.

Flowers have been placed at the base of a tree outside the home where West Shore RCMP responded to a shooting just after 9:30 p.m on March 6. Officers found a 40-year-old woman who had been shot, who later died from her injuries.

“She was at the wrong place at the wrong time,” said Kirsten Marita, a neighbour who set up the memorial Saturday afternoon. She was one of the first people on the scene before officials arrived.

“All I want to state is that everybody that showed up did an amazing job trying to help as best as we can […] She knew in her last moments that she wasn’t alone.”

Friends of the woman have identified her to Black Press Media as Angela Dalman, although police have not identified the victim yet.

West Shore RCMP Const. Nancy Saggar confirmed that the suspect, a 35-year-old man, had been brought into custody after being located by Saanich Police Department K-9 unit. Officials say he ran away from the home before officers arrived on Friday night.

Saggar said there was a “gathering of people” at the residence Friday night. Neither Dalman, nor the man lived in the home.

Police have yet to confirm how Dalman knew the man, but Saggar said they do not believe the shooting was due to intimate partner violence. As of Sunday morning, RCMP and Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) remain investigating at the scene.

“This was an isolated incident and we’re still trying to figure out exactly what the relationship was here,” Saggar said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) at 250-380-6211.
