Surrey RCMP respond to shots fired between vehicles on Saturday evening.

Shots fired in Newton

Gunfire reportedly exchanged between vehicles at 62 Avenue and 142 Street Saturday

Surrey Mounties are once again investigating shots fired in Newton.

On Saturday, at 6:26 p.m., Surrey RCMP were called to 62 Avenue and 142 Street on a report of shots fired.

Mounties found shell casings at the scene, and were advised by witnesses that two vehicles had exchanging fire, and took off.

Additional shell casing were found at 142 Street and 64 Avenue. Patrols in the area subsequently located an abandoned white Ford pickup with bullet holes, which matched the description of one of the vehicles. The other vehicle was described as a smaller car.

The investigation is still in its early stages, but it appears that this is a targeted incident.

It’s the latest in a string of shots fired reports in Newton over the last two years. It’s unclear whether this incident is related to the previous ones, many of which are believed to be connected to a low-level dial-a-dope drug operation.

Surrey RCMP, are asking that anyone who may have witnessed this incident or observed either vehicle leaving from the area are asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
