A shooting every three days in Surrey

More shots ring out over the weekend, bringing to 37 the number of incidents of gunfire in Surrey since March 9.

Surrey is averaging more than a shooting every three days since a drug turf war started in early March.

On Sunday at about 1 a.m., Surrey Mounties received a number of calls of shots fired in the area of 140 Street and 104 Avenue.

The police dog services, Air 1 helicopter and general duty officers attended and bullet casings were found near 139 Street and 104 Avenue.

There is no evidence of anything or anyone being struck.

Witnesses said they saw a dark-coloured older-model sports car with tinted windows speeding away from the scene.

It’s the 37th shooting in the last 105 days.

Police say half the shootings since March 9 have been determined to be the result of a drug turf war over a dial-a-dope operation.

Mounties are asking that anyone who may have been in the area of where the latest shots were fired to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, the special tip lLine for the shootings in the Delta/Surrey area at 604-915-6566 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
