Dog killed by gunfire into home

Man at home was not hurt in what is believed to be Surrey's 44th shooting of the year

A family dog is dead after shots were fired into a North Surrey home this week.

On Tuesday (June 28) at 12:35 a.m., Surrey Mounties received a call of shots fired into home in the 10100-block of 127 Street.

When they arrived, police found bullet holes in the front door and front window.

The family dog was dead, believed to have been hit by one of the bullets, police say.

There was a man home at the time, but he was not hurt.

Police would not say whether the man or the home are known to them previous to this shooting.

They do say that the shooting is believed to be targeted.

They could not say whether it was related to a shooting hours before in the 12800-block of 60 Avenue.

It is believed to be the 44th shooting in Surrey so far this year.

“At this point we have not located any witnesses to this incident, but it’s possible someone in the neighborhood saw a person or vehicle that looked suspicious,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann.  “We are asking anyone who may have seen anything at all to contact police with that information.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or www.solvecrime.ca.
