Police inspect a vehicle believed to be involved in a shooting incident Saturday night.

Shooting results in three arrests

Witnesses reported gun shots fired between two cars speeding through Newton on Saturday night.

Three men are in custody after a shooting in Newton on the weekend.

At just after 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Surrey RCMP received a call of shots fired between two speeding vehicles in the 12800-block of 74 Avenue, and at 72 Avenue at 130 Street.

Witnesses described the vehicles involved as a black Ford Mustang and a silver Honda Civic.

Soon after arrival, police found the Mustang and arrested the three occupants.

Police also seized the vehicle which appeared to have a bullet hole in it.

There is no indication at this point that anyone has been injured as a result of the incident.

Witnesses say that just prior to the gun violence, there had been a verbal altercation between the occupants of these vehicles. Police say it is unknown at this time if the motive was anything more than that.

Police do not believe the shootings are part of a series of gun incidents between two rival drug groups.

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 (TIPS) or www.solvecrime.ca
