SURREY— Surrey Mounties are investigating a drive-by shooting in Newton that happened early Saturday evening.
Police were called to the 6800-block of 128th Street at roughly 6:30 p.m.
“Officers could not locate anyone at the scene in relation to the shots fired,” said Staff Sgt. Joe Johal. Police received a call from a man who told them he was driving on 128th Street approaching 68th Avenue when another vehicle pulled up alongside his and someone opened fire on him. No one was injured.
The driver drove a short distance before calling police to report the shooting.
It doesn’t appear to have been random, Johal said. Nor are police able to say whether it’s linked to any other shootings.
Police continue to investigate dozens of shootings that happened earlier this year and are believed to be linked to a dial-a-dope turf war.
“Occupants of the vehicle are providing very limited information to the investigators,” Johal said.
Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
