Surrey RCMP investigate another shooting in the city’s north end

It's the 48th shooting on local streets since the beginning of March

Witnesses told police gunmen in a black pickup truck and dark sedan were shooting at each other

SURREY — Police are investigating an exchange of gunfire between two vehicles in Whalley on Thursday night.

It happened in the 11000-block of 142A Street, at about 9 p.m.

“Witnesses reported that they observed occupants of a black pickup truck and a dark colored sedan were shooting at each other as they drove through the area,” said Staff Sgt. Joe Johal, of the Surrey RCMP.

“The investigation is in its early stages and police are not able to say whether this shooting is linked to any other shootings,” he added.

This was the 48th shooting on local streets since the beginning of March. Police say many of these shootings are related to a dial-a-dope turf war in Surrey and North Delta.
