Police investigate a Boxing Day shooting in Whalley.

Boxing Day shooting in Whalley

Several bullets were fired into a home in the 9100-block of 138A Street on Dec. 26.

A Whalley neighbourhood awakened Boxing Day morning to the sound of gunshots as someone opened fire on a nearby home.

Police were called to the 9100-block of 138A Street art just after 12:30 a.m. on Dec. 26.

A family was home at the time,  but there were no reports of injuries.

Police found several bullet casings at the scene and people living nearby reported hearing numerous gunshots.

A witness who gave CTV News surveillance video of the incident said he also shared the footage with police.

In the video, a suspect vehicle is positioned behind a bush in the front yard for a few moments, fleeing the scene when a car alarm goes off in the driveway of the target home.

The witness told CTV the people who live in the home “are good people, a nice family” that have lived in the area for years.

Surrey, particularly Newton and Whalley, has been plagued with dozens of shootings since last spring.

The majority of the shootings are a result of a drug turf war over a dial-a-dope operation.

Police have not confirmed if this latest shooting has been linked to any others. The investigation is ongoing.
