Shots fired near Surrey restaurant

Witnesses tell police suspect vehicle that fled may be a silver SUV.



Shots were fired outside a Surrey restaurant on Monday evening and while the suspects and intended targets fled, Surrey RCMP are confident they’ll be able to quickly identify some of the people involved.

Police say they received reports of gunfire at just after 9 p.m. June 8 in a parking lot near 72 Avenue and 120 Street (Scott Road) – the border street between Surrey and Delta.

Officers recovered evidence at the scene confirming shots had been fired and spoke to witnesses who said the suspect vehicle may have been a silver SUV that fled the scene.

Two males who had been eating at the Earls restaurant appear to have been the intended targets, say police. They also fled in a blue vehicle before police arrived. There were no injuries reported and the men thought to be targeted have not contacted police.

“We have recovered a substantial amount of evidence at the scene and believe we will be able to identify some of these people quickly,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr.

Police say they’re especially concerned about the most recent shooting as it took place in such a public area. There are several restaurants and businesses near the busy intersection, as well as a movie theatre nearby.

There have been more than 30 shootings in Surrey and Delta since March.

Anyone with information on this or any of the incidents is asked to call the tip line at 604-915-6566 or if you wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also leave an anonymous tip online at www.solvecrime.ca
