Two more shootings in two days

Gunfire cracks a three-week silence and brings this year's number of shootings in Surrey to 37.

Gunplay has again erupted on Surrey streets, as police respond two incidents of shots fired in as many days.

Police are investigating a shooting that took place near 72 Avenue and 151 Street on Tuesday night.

At about 7:45 p.m., Surrey RCMP received a call of shots fired at the busy Newton intersection. When officers arrived, they found evidence of gun violence and later determined shots were fired between vehicles.

The suspect vehicle was seen fleeing from the area and the targeted car has since been found.

No one was shot in the incident, but a male sustained minor injures from shattered glass.

Police believe it was a targeted incident.

The shooting comes a day after another just a half-a-kilometre away.

At about 2:20 a.m. Monday, police were called to report of shots fired in the 7600-block of 135 Street. Mounties found evidence at the scene but no victim.

Moments later, Surrey RCMP received a call from an Abbotsford hospital reporting someone showed up with gunshot wounds saying it happened in Surrey.

The two latest shootings bring to 37 the number of shots fired incidents in Surrey so far this year.

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 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or www.solvecrime.ca
