Male shot in Surrey’s Bear Creek area (with video)

SURREY RCMP are on scene following a shooting in the Bear Creek area that has sent one person to hospital.

On Friday, May 5, at approximately 8:06 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to the report of a shooting in a residential driveway located in the 8100-block of 144A Street.

Police located an adult male suffering from apparent gunshot wounds and provided medical assistance until Emergency Health Services arrived on scene. The man was transported to hospital with serious injuries.

Social media has identified the victim as a well-known kabaddi player and promoter, Nitu Kang.

One person who didn’t want to be identified told The VOICE that six or seven shots were fired at the victim and he was hit in the abdomen and leg. He is expected to survive.

At approximately 8:34 a.m., Surrey RCMP were notified of a vehicle fire at 125A Street and Colebrook Road. The vehicle located on fire is similar in description to the suspect vehicle seen fleeing the area of the shooting; however, further investigation is required to link the two incidents, Cpl. Vanessa Munn said.

Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit has conduct of both investigations and are in the evidence gathering stage. This appears to be a targeted incident; however, the motive is unknown.

Anyone with information or dash camera footage from the area is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
