Langley man killed with Uzi-type weapon

‘Drugs and guns don’t mix as a 51-year-old Langley man found out the hard way.

The local man, who was known to police, is dead after accidentally shooting himself in the head while mishandling an Uzi-type gun at a well-known drug house on Thursday morning.

Around 2:10 a.m., Langley RCMP were called to 20217 82 Ave. in Willoughby.

The 51-year-old victim is a resident of the home along with a 33-year-old man and 56-year-old Langley woman. Police say the three had been using drugs and handling a pistol similar to an Uzi. The weapon is illegal in Canada.’
