Two drive-by shootings in Surrey in as many days

Police are investigating two drive-by shootings in Surrey in as many days

SURREY— Surrey has had two drive-by shootings in as many days. Police don’t yet know if they are linked.

“We’re not sure,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann, “reason being we haven’t identified any suspects. Nobody’s shown up at hospital with gunshot wounds.”

The most recent shooting was at 15:15 p.m. Monday. The Surrey RCMP received several phone calls about a white Jeep chasing a black Chevrolet Corvette near 132nd Street and 89th Avenue in Whalley. Police flooded the area with patrol cars but have not found the two vehicles. Witnesses told investigators that three or four shots were fired from the Jeep at the Corvette.

“Evidence was located in the area to support these reports of shoots being fired,” said Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Blair McColl. “A canvass of the area failed to locate any indications of injuries or damage.

“No arrests have been made,” he said. “The investigation is still in its early stages, but initial indications are that this incident is targeted and that the parties involved likely knew each other. It is too early to tell if this incident is linked to any other conflicts in Surrey.”

Surrey Mounties are also investigating a drive-by shooting in Newton that happened early Saturday evening.

Police were called to the 6800-block of 128th Street at roughly 6:30 p.m.

“Officers could not locate anyone at the scene in relation to the shots fired,” said Staff Sgt. Joe Johal. Police received a call from a man who told them he was driving on 128th Street approaching 68th Avenue when another vehicle pulled up alongside his and someone opened fire on him. No one was injured.

The driver drove a short distance before calling police to report the shooting.

It doesn’t appear to have been random, Johal said. Nor are police able to say whether it’s linked to any other shootings.

Police continue to investigate dozens of shootings that happened earlier this year and are believed to be linked to a dial-a-dope turf war.

“Occupants of the vehicle are providing very limited information to the investigators,” Johal said.

Police ask anyone with information about these shootings to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
