Shots fired at car on Fraser Highway in Surrey

Occupants in Nissan Maxima reported that men in Dodge Durango shot at them.

More shots were fired in Surrey early Tuesday morning, this time, at a car driving on Fraser Highway.

Surrey RCMP received a report at about 3:20 a.m. June 30 from a caller who said a black Dodge Durango with five or six South Asian men pulled up next to a black Nissan Maxima near 157 Street and two men fired shots from the Durango.

The Durango drove away eastbound on Fraser Highway, and the Maxima followed in hopes of getting a licence plate number.

However, someone in the Durango fired at the Maxima again and the driver halted the chase.

The Durango was last seen heading westbound on the highway, say police. The occupants of the Maxima called police and were uninjured.

“We’re fortunate that no one was hurt and we don’t recommend that anyone pursue armed suspects for obvious safety reasons,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “Our investigators are now searching the route for surveillance camera footage and will be completing a forensic examination of the victim’s vehicle. Investigators are still combing Fraser Highway for evidence and motorists may experience some delays in the area.”

Surrey RCMP have not said whether they believe the shooting is related to the more than three dozen that have taken place in Surrey and Delta since March. About half of those are believed to be connected to a turf war between drug dealers.

Anyone with more information about this shooting can call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Tips can also be made online at www.solvecrime.ca
