Police investigate drive-by shooting in Surrey

SURREY – Surrey Mounties are investigating a drive-by shooting after numerous bullets were fired at a house in Newton last night.

Police said nobody was injured in the shooting. It happened at 8:40 p.m. Wednesday, in the 12100-block of 82nd Avenue. People were inside the house at the time.

The Surrey RCMP cordoned off the area, blocking traffic along a stretch of 82nd Avenue just east of Scott Road, as a police dog searched the area and officers appeared to be collecting bullet casings from the street.

One area resident said she heard 10 shots. "Sounded like they emptied a clip," she said.

Another woman said she also heard shots. "It was such a loud noise," she said.

Police are looking for suspects and reviewing video surveillance footage. Cpl. Bert Paquet said they are also looking for a small greenish-grey SUV with a hatchback that sped away from the area. He described it as a "possible suspect vehicle."

"The specific house we believe was targeted because of alleged criminal activities associated to a person that resides there," Paquet said.

Paquet noted the neighbourhood is a "fairly nice area, not an area where we see these kinds of things."
