A fatal shooting at a rural home on Glover Road on Saturday morning is now a double murder.

One of the victims in the shooting was rushed to hospital in critical condition but passed away days later.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has identified the two victims. The man found dead of gun shot wounds has been identified as 27-year-old Gordon Spencer. The man who later died in hospital has been identified as Bruce Mayo, 25.

Neither of the deceased were residents of the home which is located in the 6400 block of Glover Road.

Already a web page has started for Spencer to help raise funds for the children he leaves behind. According to the website he also leaves behind a fiance.

Langley RCMP have been to that house before, said IHIT Sgt. Jennifer Pound.

Five people were arrested at the scene, four men and one woman, believed to be between the ages of 17 to 22 years old. They have been interviewed and released without charges.

Around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, Langley RCMP responded to a 911 call about a domestic dispute at a home in the 6400 block of Glover Road. When they arrived, five people were standing outside the home and inside was heavily doused with bear spray, said Pound.

Two men were inside the home, one had already died from gun shot wounds and the other was critically injured from shots fired.

IHIT investigators were on the scene on Saturday morning, interviewing neighbours and gathering evidence from the home.

The motive isn't known at this time.
