Surrey RCMP is investigating a report of shots fired in the Clayton area of Surrey.

On Tuesday August 8th at 12:00pm, Surrey RCMP was called to the 7000 block of 180th Street for a report of shots fired. On attendance, police located a vehicle and a garage door that had been struck by bullets.

The vehicle was occupied at the time and thankfully no injuries were reported. The suspect was on a motorcycle that fled the area prior to police arrival.

Surrey RCMP’s General Investigation Unit (GIU) is leading this investigation. The Lower Mainland Integrated Forensic Identification Service, along with GIU officers, are surveying the scene. A neighbourhood canvass will be conducted to locate any potential witnesses or surveillance video. The investigation is in the early stages, however, police believe this to be a targeted incident.

Shots fired investigations are a priority for this detachment, says Corporal Scotty Schumann. If anyone witnessed this event or has any information about the suspect, please contact police immediately.
