Surrey RCMP investigate this city's latest shooting.

Surrey sees 43rd shooting this year

Gunfire comes at a rate of about one per week, as police appeal for information regarding the gunmen.



Shots rang out in Newton in the mid-day hours of Sunday as two cars appeared to be shooting at each other, bringing the total number of shootings this year to 43.

It’s just about a shooting a week.

Surrey RCMP was called to 72 Avenue and 124 Street on Sunday at a 2:35 p.m. after gunfire was heard.

Witnesses said two vehicles were stopped, while one shot at the other.

One vehicle was described as a dark colored SUV with an Alberta

license plate of K80 469.  The second vehicle directly involved was described as a dark colored Honda.  Both vehicles were last seen speeding off westbound on 72nd Avenue.

During the incident two other vehicles, not involved in the incident, were struck by one of the suspect vehicles and sustained minor damage.

Fortunately, no one in those vehicles was hurt.

Surrey RCMP, along with Delta Police, made extensive patrols

but were unable to locate the two suspect vehicles.

“Regardless of the motive for this incident, violent crime suppression continues to be the top priority for this detachment,”

says Cpl. Scotty Schumann. We’re appealing to anyone who may know the suspects or have further information, to come forward.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
