Surrey RCMP investigate shooting in Whalley

SURREY — Surrey Mounties are investigating a shooting in Whalley Sunday night after a 19-year-old man showed up at hospital with a gunshot wound.

Police received 911 calls from the area of 134th Street and 90th Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. reporting shots fired and vehicles zooming away. Shortly after that, the victim arrived at hospital with an injury that wasn’t considered to be life threatening.

“Additional police officers attended to the hospital and spoke to the victim, who was not totally cooperative with police,” Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson said. “The scene of the shooting was located, and physical evidence was recovered. The surrounding area was canvassed for witnesses. It appears that the shooter is known to the victim and the incident does not appear to be random.”

Police are asking witnesses or anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
