Man shot at car wash near Surrey-Delta border, police say

Police have 120th Street closed in both directions as the investigation continues and it’s not yet known when the road will reopen.

Police say there has been a shooting on the Surrey Delta border.

Details are sparse but Delta Police have confirmed there has been a shooting near 92nd Avenue and 120th Street.

Police received reports of gunfire around 11:15 a.m. Monday and a man has been taken to hospital, confirmed Delta Police Department spokeswoman Sharlene Brooks.

Police have 120th Street closed in both directions as the investigation continues, said Brooks, and it’s not yet known when the road will reopen.

Witnesses at the scene tell the Now that Elite Auto Spa (9215 120th St.) is roped off and much of the police activity is concentrated there.

“We have our patrol officers, along with our criminal investigation team, on scene,” said Brooks. “So we have a significant number of police resources in the area.

“We understand the concern this raises in the community,” she added, noting more details will be provided as they become available. “At this point we’ve got more questions than answers.”

Delta Police has conduct of the investigation, said Brooks, but it’s unclear if the shooting happened in Surrey or Delta in this early stage of the investigation.
