SURREY RCMP announced on Monday that they taken into custody five individuals that may be connected to the two shots fired incidents that occurred at a South Surrey home this past weekend.
On September 23 and then again on September 24, Surrey RCMP responded to reports of shots fired at a residence in the 14700-block of 30th Avenue.
The first shooting took place just after 6 a.m. on Saturday (September 23), but was reported to police approximately 12 hours later at 5:45 p.m. that day. No victims were located.
Police had earlier reported that another shooting had occurred at the same place at approximately 5:21 a.m. on Sunday. Police didn’t find any victims.
The Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit (GIU) is leading this investigation which led police to a residence in White Rock. There, with the assistance of the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team, five persons were taken into custody and three vehicles were seized. Investigators are obtaining a search warrant for the residence and determining what involvement, if any, the five persons played in the shootings.
“While it is still early in the investigations, we believe both incidents were targeted and related,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “We’re thankful that no one was injured during these reckless events. Investigators would like to speak with anyone that may have witnessed these shootings or has information about those who may have been involved.”
Surrey RCMP are continuing to investigate these incidents on a priority basis and are seeking additional information from the public.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
