Vancouver police are investigating a Friday evening shooting in the parking lot of an east Vancouver shopping center.

The shooting occurred at 5:30 p.m. at 18801 S.E. Mill Plain Blvd., according to dispatch records. Police were dispatched to a report of a disturbance with weapons and a report of a man suffering from a gunshot wound.
