THE Surrey RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit on Monday issued another appeal for information from the public to assist in the investigation of a shooting which occurred one year ago. (see previous release)
On July 9, 2017, at approximately 3:30 p.m., Surrey RCMP received multiple 911 calls reporting a shooting between parties associated to two vehicles in the 7700-block of 147A Street. Police located an adult female suffering from a gunshot wound. Although investigators believe this was a targeted shooting, it is believed that the victim was not the intended target.
A photo of two suspects was captured on home surveillance video and is now being distributed to the public to assist in identifying them. The suspects are also believed to be associated to a red pickup truck which was located on fire a short distance away in the 9000-block of 150th Street. The pickup was determined to be stolen out of the Vernon area earlier in the day on July 9.
Last year, the RCMP had said that the investigators believed that the intended victims departed the area in a black Hyundai vehicle. The black Hyundai was last seen with front end damage and the bumper had fallen off. Police also said that the investigators believed that this was a targeted event between two parties that were known to each other in some manner.
“Over the course of the last year, investigators have collected vast amounts of evidence which they are continuing to examine,” said Sgt. Chad Greig. “We believe there are people with information that will assist us in bringing this investigation to its conclusion, and we ask you to contact us and help bring some closure for an innocent woman.”
Anyone with information about this incident, the stolen vehicle out of Vernon, or the suspects is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or contact Crime Stoppers, if you wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca
