Police investigating Surrey's 45th confirmed shooting this year

SURREY — Surrey Mounties are investigating the city’s 45th confirmed shooting of 2016 after a man was rushed to hospital with a gunshot wound to his belly early Tuesday morning.

Police were called to 108th Avenue and King George Boulevard at about 2:50 a.m. to find him with another man.

“The victim was transported to hospital in serious, but non-life-threatening condition,” Corporal Scotty Schumann said. “The initial investigation has revealed that the two males were walking in the area when they were passed by two unknown male suspects on bicycles who fired a single shot towards them.

“Officers believed this is a targeted incident,” Schumann added. “Both the male victim and his associate are known to police.”

While this is the city’s 45th confirmed shooting this year, the Surrey RCMP says there have been others they have not told the public about.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP’s General Investigation Unit at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
