THE Surrey RCMP has called in the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) following a shooting that occurred early Thursday morning near the Whalley/Guildford border.
On February 4, shortly before 7:30 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to reports of shots heard in the 10800-block of 139A Street. Surrey RCMP Frontline officers arrived located a man and woman inside a residence, both suffering from gunshot injuries. The man, who is in his early 40s, has non-life-threatening injuries while the woman was in grave condition. Both were transported to area hospitals where the woman, who was in her early 20s, unfortunately succumbed to her injuries.
