SURREY — A 17-year-old Surrey boy is expected to survive after he was shot in the leg at a basketball court at a local elementary school on Tuesday night.

It happened at Prince Charles Elementary School, in the 12400-block of 100th Avenue, at about 8:40 p.m. The school’s caretaker found the victim bleeding on the court and called police. Paramedics rushed him to hospital.

“At this point we’re not sure as to the motive,” Surrey RCMP Sgt. Paul Hayes said at press time.

Staff Sgt. Joe Johal said the victim was approached by two young men and one of them shot him in the leg.

“Officers conducted neighborhood canvassing and spoke with several witnesses to obtain further information,” he said.

The two men ran from the scene. Police dogs were brought in but so far there has been no arrest.

The suspects are white, believed to be ages 17 to 25, about five feet 10 inches tall, were wearing dark clothing and covered their faces with scarves.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
