SURREY R.C.M.P. were advised at about 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday by the B.C. Ambulance services that they were talking to a male that had been shot, and was in the area of 126A Street and 78th Avenue in Surrey. Police located a black vehicle that had been shot several times and was disabled with two males remaining with the vehicle. Shortly after this, a second vehicle arrived at the hospital with two other males, including the victim that had been shot.
According to what witnesses told police, it appears that a vehicle came up beside the black vehicle, and a number of shots were fired at the black vehicle, one of which struck the victim in it. The first vehicle then sped off, and the black vehicle came to stop a short distance away, disabled from being hit. The victim was then picked up by a third vehicle which drove the victim to the hospital. The victim is a 21-year-old resident of Surrey that is known to police. The victim is presently being treated in hospital in serious but stable condition.
Surrey R.C.M.P. are speaking to the victim and the other four males associated to the two vehicles located. The suspect vehicle is still untraced. It appears that the shooting was targeted.
Surrey R.C.M.P. are seeking the public’s assistance, and are asking anyone that may have observed this incident, or have observed a vehicle driving away from the scene to call the Surrey R.C.M.P. at 604-599-0502
