A man was taken to hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening after a shooting in Whalley on Thursday night.

Surrey RCMP Staff Sergeant Tyner Gillies said police were called to the 10000-block of 128A Street at about 9 p.m. and temporarily closed the street to both vehicle and pedestrians. They were still on scene Friday morning, collecting evidence. Police ask anyone with information, including dash cam footage around the area between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

Corp. Vanessa Munn said Friday that three people who were inside the residence were taken into custody “pending further investigation.”

“The investigation is still in the early stages. I don’t have further information that I can provide at this time,” she said. “I don’t believe there are any road closures in effect at this time.

“The initial indications are that it was a targeted incident and the victim is known to police.”
