Taxi cab shot at in North Surrey

Passengers told police the shooting followed a dispute at a nearby party Saturday night.



Surrey RCMP are looking for a car and its occupants after a cab was shot at in North Surrey on Saturday.

Police said a taxi driver was driving on 102A Avenue near University Boulevard just before 11 p.m. when a car pulled up beside him on the driver’s side. An occupant fired a shot into the cab.

The bullet passed through the driver side rear window, then through the passenger compartment of the car where people were sitting, and out the passenger rear window.

The cab driver stopped his taxi immediately and the suspect vehicle took off. The four passengers in the cab – two males and two females – also fled before police arrived. No one was injured.

Police have now spoken to the four passengers, who indicated the shooting followed a dispute at a nearby party.

Cpl. Bert Paquet said police believe it was a targeted incident and are actively seeking the suspect vehicle.

Anyone with information on the vehicle and occupants is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8422 to remain anonymous.
