Seven Surrey shootings in five days

SURREY — A Whalley house was hit by bullets in a drive-by shooting that happened early Sunday morning.

People living at the house — near 94th Avenue and 126th Street — called the cops at 2:30 a.m. saying their home had been shot.

When RCMP arrived, they found bullet casings but didn’t see a person or car leaving the area. They also said the residents of the house were uncooperative when questioned.

According to police, this was the second time in less than a week that the home was targeted. It was the subject of another drive-by shooting on Thursday. There were no injuries in either situation.

Staff Sgt. Joe Johal told the Now that police are looking into whether the drive-by is connected to shootings that happened earlier in the week.

It is the seventh report of gunfire in five days for Surrey.

On Tuesday, March 10 police were called to Surrey Memorial Hospital at 4 a.m. to find a man suffering from gunshot wounds.

A second shooting happened at roughly 7 p.m., also on March 10, near 127th Street and 78th Avenue. Witnesses told police a vehicle pulled up alongside a black vehicle and shots were fired, striking a 21-year-old Surrey man who was taken to hospital in serious but stable condition.

A third shooting happened hours later, at 11 p.m. on March 10. Police responded to calls of shots fired near 128th Street and 76th Avenue. Several vehicles sped away from the scene but there were no apparent victims.

On Wednesday, March 11 police responded to reports of shots fired near 80th Avenue and 132nd Street at roughly 2 p.m. Shell casings were found at the scene. Witnesses say they saw a white SUV chasing a black Acura.

Just before midnight Wednesday police found a man suffering from a gunshot wound in Clayton. Surrey RCMP are investigating but suspect he was shot outside of Surrey.

On March 12, at 3:30 a.m., shots were fired at a residence near 94th Avenue and 126th Street. Police said at the time that they didn’t think it was related to the other shootings.

At a press conference Thursday afternoon, police said five young men are believed to be involved in four of the shootings: Sameh Mohammed, 20, of Surrey, Pardip Brar, 20, of Delta, Pardeep Singh, 20, of Surrey, Indervir Johal, 21, of Surrey, and Amrit Kular, 20, of Surrey. Johal and Singh were shot.

As of Sunday morning, police said no arrests have been made although they are still looking for the young men.
