Two men found shot outside Surrey hospital following morning gunfire

SURREY —  Police officers responding to reports of gunfire at a suspected marijuana grow-op in Cloverdale later found two shooting victims writhing in pain outside of Surrey Memorial Hospital.

Surrey RCMP responded to reports of shots fired at a home in the 17900 block of 40th Avenue at about 5 a.m. Tuesday morning (Oct. 28). When officers arrived they found evidence of a marijuana grow-op but could not find any victims, according to police.

But 20 minutes later, two men were found with gunshot wounds in a parking lot across the street from Surrey Memorial Hospital, on 137B Street and 96th Avenue.

Although Surrey RCMP say it’s early in the investigation, the two incidents appear related.

One man had reportedly been shot in the leg and the other was shot in the abdomen.

Both male victims are in their 30s and listed in serious condition.

“One’s in very serious condition,” said RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr.

Carr said the victims, whose names have not been released, are known to police and from the Chilliwack area.

Surrey RCMP’s General Investigations Unit is currently looking for suspects in the shooting.

Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
