South Asian male shot in Surrey on Sunday night

ON Sunday, at about 8:30 p.m., Surrey R.C.M.P. received a number of 911 calls reporting shots heard in the area of 134th Street and 90th Avenue. Witnesses said that several vehicles were observed driving away quickly from the area.  Surrey General Duty members as well as Surrey General Investigations Unit attended to the area immediately.

A short time later a 19-year-old resident of Surrey arrived at a hospital suffering from a single non-life-threatening gunshot wound.  Police officers spoke to the victim at the hospital, but he was not totally cooperative with them.

Police sources confirmed that the male was South Asian.

Police say they recovered physical evidence from the scene of the shooting and canvassed the surrounding area for witnesses.  It appears that the shooter is known to the victim, and the incident does not appear to be random.

Surrey R.C.M.P. are seeking the public’s assistance, and requesting that anyone who may have witnessed this incident, and / or observed vehicles fleeing from the area call them at 604-599-0502 or to call CrimeStoppers.
