Officers investigate another vehicle to vehicle shooting in Surrey early Wednesday

Surrey shooting spate continues

Shots were reportedly fired between two vehicles around 1 a.m. today, on 66 Avenue near 128 Street.



Hours after police said a drug turf battle is behind a spate of brazen shootings, Surrey’s incident total climbed another notch.

Police have confirmed that several witnesses called around 1 a.m. Wednesday, reporting an exchange of gunfire between a red pickup and a grey SUV westbound on 66 Avenue at 128 Street.

Shell casings were recovered from the scene.

Police have no evidence that anyone was injured in the incident.

It brings to 20 the number of shooting incidents that have been logged in Surrey and Delta since March 9, and police say, while not conclusively linked to the previous incidents, it “appears to be along the same line as the others.”

“Our serious crime unit is investigating the incident and will be in the area today canvassing for information,” Cpl. Bert Paquet told Peace Arch News by email. “Additionally, our forensic unit is processing a number of pieces of evidence gathered from the scene.”

Yesterday afternoon, Surrey RCMP and Delta police announced that a group of South Asians and Somalians were responsible for shootings that have plagued the two cities since March 9.

“We believe these two groups are competing over drug turf and have chosen to resolve their differences in a way that jeopardizes public safety,” Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy told reporters Tuesday.

There have now been 17 incidents in Surrey and three in Delta.
