23rd shooting in seven weeks

Surrey RCMP are investigating yet another shooting in the city, this time an incident paired with a stabbing.

Shots rang out again in Surrey earlier this week, marking  the 23rd shooting in seven weeks.

At about 3 a.m. Tuesday, Surrey RCMP were called to 94 Avenue and 124 Street to reports of an unknown number of shots fired.

There were also reports of people arguing and cars driving erratically.

When Mounties arrived, they found evidence of a shooting at the scene and an indication of a fight.

Police indicate a man was also stabbed at the scene.

Police say there is no indication at this point that Tuesday’s shooting is related to previous gun violence in Surrey and North Delta.

Police are asking anyone with more information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS ).

On Tuesday afternoon, in response to the recent spate of shootings and violence, Delta Police announced that a mobile surveillance camera trailer will be installed in North Delta to improve and ensure ongoing community safety and to assist with investigative initiatives.

The unit is self-contained with a 30-foot tower boom that houses four individual high-resolution cameras. They will be in operation 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“The cameras are being deployed as a temporary crime deterrence initiative in response to the ongoing gun violence across Surrey and Delta,” said Acting Delta Police Chief Lyle Beaudoin.

“We believe they will both deter criminal actions related to the violence, but also aid us in the investigative process.”

Access to the footage will only be granted following any incident in which it is believed the footage will assist in an investigation, and only at the direction of police inspectors within the Delta Police and CFSEU.

The unit has been loaned to the Delta Police Department at no cost from a local manufacturer.

The tower camera will be initially deployed at 80 Avenue and 120 Street.
