Police are investigating another shooting in Surrey over the weekend.

On Saturday, at about 3 a.m., hospital staff told police they had a patient who appears to have been shot.

Surrey RCMP spoke with a 36-year-old man who was suffering from several gunshots to the the lower extremities.

The injuries were not considered life threatening.

The investigation is described in its infancy, but initial indications are that it is a targeted incident and involves people known to each other.

RCMP say the victim is well known to the police and that he is not co-operating with the investigation.

It is the fourth shooting this month. Police have not said yet whether they believe the latest is linked to a drug turf war that’s the backdrop to about 20 shootings since March 9.

Anyone with further information, who has not already spoken to police, is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or www.solvecrime.ca.
