Surrey, BC – Surrey RCMP is currently in the 15300 block of 86th Avenue after a shooting earlier this afternoon.
On June 25, 2017 at 3:00pm, Surrey RCMP was called to a report of a shooting in the 15300 block of 86th Avenue. Police found evidence at that location consistent with multiple rounds being spent from a firearm. The area has been secured and the Surrey RCMP Serious Crime unit is investigating the incident.
Approximately 30 minutes later Surrey RCMP received a report that two males attended a local area hospital with injuries consistent with being shot. Surrey RCMP officers attended the hospital and determined that the injuries are non-life-threatening. Serious Crime investigators will be interviewing these males in relation to this incident. Investigators believe that this incident is targeted.
A short time later in the afternoon Surrey RCMP received a report of a vehicle fire in Cloverdale. Once police were on scene police were able to determine that the vehicle was one of the two vehicles involved in the shooting. The vehicle has been seized and will be processed for evidence related to the shooting.
“Shootings of any kind are a concern to both police and the community, however, a mid-day shooting in a quite family neighbourhood displays disrespect coupled with a complete and utter callous disregard for the safety of the community,” says S/Sgt Dale Carr Acting Duty Officer, Surrey RCMP.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
