A home in Surrey was targeted with gunfire over the weekend, with the motive still under investigation.

On Sunday (May 12) night, police received a report of shots fired that hit a home in the 7300 block of 130 Street in Surrey’s Newton neighbourhood. The crime is believed by police to have happened between 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Sunday night, a press release from Surrey RCMP states.

In addition to the home itself being shot at, a vehicle parked in the driveway was also hit with gunfire, according to police.

No injuries were reported.

“This appears to be a targeted and isolated incident,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Sarbjit Sangha, adding that the motive is not yet known.

Investigators from the RCMP’s general investigation unit have taken over the file and are reviewing CCTV footage and canvassing for witnesses. So far, there is no evidence linking the shots-fired incident to the B.C. gang conflict, police say.

Police are appealing for more information, asking anyone with CCTV or dash camera footage or possible witnesses in the area during the time to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 and quote file number 202-67480.
