Teen drives himself to hospital after being shot in Surrey

Police were initially unable to find victim after shots were fired Sunday night in Newton.

Police believe a 17-year-old was driving this van when he was shot multiple times Jan. 25 in Surrey.

A 17-year-old is in hospital after he suffered multiple gunshot wounds Sunday night and apparently drove himself to hospital.

Surrey RCMP say they received reports of shots fired in the 13000 block of 73 Avenue on Sunday (Jan. 25) at about 10:15 p.m.

While officers found several bullet casings at the scene, they were initially unable to locate a victim.

About 15 minutes later, police were informed a teen with several gunshot wounds had driven himself to Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH).

As of Monday morning, he was listed in serious, but stable condition and had spoken briefly with investigators.

Police say initial indications are that the shooting was targeted, not random.

A dark van with a smashed out passenger-side window and blood on the driver’s seat was seen being towed from SMH.

Surrey RCMP say they’re still trying to piece together exactly what happened and whether there was anyone else in the vehicle at the time of the shooting.

No arrests have been made.
