Two young men known to police escape uninjured in Langley shooting

YET another shooting in the Lower Mainland!

Langley RCMP responded to a report of shots fired last night around 7:30 p.m.

Officers attended the 7000 block of 196A avenue after several callers reported hearing shots fired in the area. Two young men, aged 25 and 26, believed to be the intended targets, were not injured.

A Dodge Durango was left at the scene and a white SUV was reported to have fled. Ten minutes later Surrey RCMP attended a vehicle fire in the 7300-block of 182 Street. Both vehicles have been seized.

Witnesses said that the Durango pulled into a cul-de-sac where the SUV was parked. An occupant of the SUV began shooting at the Durango which then fled the area. Additional shots were fired and the SUV took off from the area.

Police said both men in the Durango are known to them and are not co-operating with the investigation.
