Woman shot in leg at Newton trailer park

SURREY – A woman was shot in the leg at a trailer park in Newton early Sunday morning.

Police say the 28-year-old woman was walking in the Mac’s parking lot at 80th Avenue and King George Boulevard at about 3:30 a.m. when a dark coloured SUV pulled up to her and she and the occupants got into an argument.

She then walked over to the Town and Country trailer park, in the 8200-block of King George.

The SUV followed her, the spat continued, and one of the SUV’s occupants shot her in the lower leg.

The SUV then took off. Police are still looking for suspects.

“The female victim was transported to hospital by ambulance and is presently being treated for her injury,” Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson said. “The motive for the shooting is presently unknown, but the incident does not appear to be random.”
