File # 2016-64211
Surrey RCMP is currently investigating a second shooting that occurred on May 9th in addition to the shots fired incident in Newton last night (see news release). Police believe the two incidents may be connected to each other and are seeking additional information from the public.
In the early morning hours of May 9th, 2016, Surrey RCMP received a call from Abbotsford that there was a male at their local hospital suffering from non-life threatening gunshot wounds. The investigation is in the early stages, however, it does appear that this is a targeted incident that occurred in Surrey. The male involved is not from Surrey and he is known to police.
The Surrey RCMP is asking anyone who has any information regarding this incident that may have occurred in the 7500 block of 135 Street at approximately 2:20am on May 9th to call Surrey RCMP.
Both shootings that occurred on May 9th are not believed to be related to the most recent Surrey conflict. Surrey RCMP is liaising with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU-BC) and other policing partners to determine if there are links to other conflicts in the region.
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 or www.solvecrime.ca.
