Another Surrey shooting Friday morning

This makes 49 shootings on local streets since the beginning of March

There have been two shootings in Surrey within 10 and a half hours

SURREY — Police are investigating two drive-by shootings in Surrey within 10 and a half hours.

The latest happened in the 9900-block of 156th Street — a stone’s throw from William F. Davidson elementary school in Guildford — at 7:30 a.m. today (Friday).

The rear windshield of a red Chevrolet Cavalier was shot out in a driveway and a nearby house was also hit with bullets. There were no injuries.

The shots came from a red van, which was found abandoned a short distance from the crime scene. This was the 49th shooting on local streets since the beginning of March.

Police say many of these shootings are related to a dial-a-dope turf war in Surrey and North Delta.

Police are also investigating an exchange of gunfire between two vehicles in Whalley on Thursday night.

It happened in the 11000-block of 142A Street, at about 9 p.m.

“Witnesses reported that they observed occupants of a black pickup truck and a dark colored sedan were shooting at each other as they drove through the area,” said Staff Sgt. Joe Johal, of the Surrey RCMP.

“The investigation is in its early stages and police are not able to say whether this shooting is linked to any other shootings,” he added.
