Second Surrey shooting in 13 hours

Police respond to another Newton shooting where homes were fired at.

Surrey RCMP are investigating a second shooting in Newton in less than a day.

Surrey RCMP were called to a Newton home at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday after reports of shots fired at a home, near 132 Street and 78 Avenue.

When police arrived, they found bullet holes in windows,  broken glass and a number of shell casings.

It’s the second shooting in 15 hours in Newton, both drive by shootings of homes in the area.

Fortunately, no one was hurt in either shooting.

Police have no suspects as of yet.

“At this point we have no idea if that vehicle was associated to the call, it was just the only thing heard at that time after the shots were fired,” Surrey RCMP Sgt. Paul Hayes told CTV News.

He said witnesses are hard to find because it occurred while most people were sleeping.

Police could not say whether the two shootings are related.

On Monday, at 11:40 a.m., police responded to a home shot in the 12700-block 67B Avenue.

There were two adults and two children home at the time.

As a result of that shooting, four schools were locked down for a short time.

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 or www.solvecrime.ca.
