Two more shootings in Surrey

Shots fired in west Newton area early morning and mid-afternoon Sunday.

Surrey RCMP is investigating two more shootings that took place Sunday – one of which was in the middle of the afternoon.

Police say the first report of gunfire came in about 3 a.m. Sunday in the 8300-block of 128 Street. Officers found evidence that shots had been fired, but no injuries were reported.

As of Monday afternoon, police were still trying to determine if the incident was linked to any of the dozens of shootings that have occurred in Surrey and Delta in recent months.

The second Surrey shooting July 5 was at 1:45 p.m. near 123 Street and 71A Avenue – a brazen daytime incident police believe was targeted.

Once on scene, investigators found a man suffering from minor cuts from glass fragments resulting from another car shooting at the victim’s vehicle. He was treated at the scene and released.

It’s believed the gunfire came from a dark-coloured vehicle.

Police canvassed the neighbourhood and spoke with several witnesses and the investigation continues.

Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is

asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, to remain

anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca
