SURREY RCMP announced on Wednesday that they are investigating two unrelated shooting incidents that took place in the city overnight.
The first incident occurred at approximately 2:08 a.m. on April 3 inside a residence in the area of 91st Avenue and 148th Street. Police received reports of shots fired and a dark-coloured SUV was observed fleeing the area. Frontline officers quickly attended and located an adult male inside the residence suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The man was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Evidence gathered to this point in the investigation indicates that this was a targeted shooting.
The second incident occurred at approximately 2:46 a.m. outside of a residence in the area of 142nd Street and 110th Avenue. Surrey RCMP received multiple reports of shots fired. Frontline officers quickly responded and confirmed a shooting had occurred. No victims were located at the scene and the residence was vacant upon police arrival.
Investigators believe this was a targeted shooting related to the drug trade.
Police said there is no information at this time to suggest these two shootings are related.
“The shootings which have occurred over the previous two days are concerning for our community. It is understandable that these incidents can erode the public’s feelings of safety,” said Cpl. Elenore Sturko, “We will continue to strategically target individuals and groups who put the public at risk through violent criminal activity.”
The Surrey RCMP Serious Crime Unit and the General Investigation Unit have assumed conduct of these investigations. The Surrey RCMP Gang Enforcement Team, along with the Surrey Traffic Unit, and the frontline officers will be conducting enhanced targeted enforcement.
Members of the public are asked to report suspicious activity in Surrey to the Surrey RCMP. Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or contact CrimeStoppers, if you wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or
