SURREY – There was a daylight gunfight between the occupants of two cars along 152nd Street in Newton on Saturday.
It happened at about 6 p.m., between 66A Avenue and 70A Avenue. A champagne-coloured Toyota Camry and a blue Ford Focus were involved and police are still looking for the shooters and their cars.
Meantime, Surrey Mounties continue to investigate a shooting in Whalley that happened earlier in the week. They were responding to a report of a break-in at the Dell Shopping Centre in Whalley Thursday night when a man started shooting at them.
It happened at 10604 King George Boulevard, at about 8:45 p.m. “The first officer on the scene was about to approach the suspect when the suspect discharged a firearm at the officer,” Sgt. Dale Carr said.
The officer returned fire, but nobody was shot in the gunfight and the gunman eventually dropped his weapon.
The suspect is a 24-year-old Surrey man, whose name has not yet been released.
Meanwhile, police are also investigating a stabbing that happened late Thursday night in the 13700-block of 72nd Avenue in Newton. A 40-year-old man was taken to Surrey Memorial Hospital with what police said was a superficial stab wound to his chest after he’d apparently got into a fight with someone in a black Jeep Cherokee. Police are looking for suspects.
