Gang unit investigates three shootings in 19 hours

Police believe violent incidents are linked and targeted



The Surrey RCMP Gang Enforcement Unit is now  investigating three separate shootings in 19 hours.

All are believed related and targeted.

It all began at 4 a.m. Tuesday (March 10), when a 20-year-old man was dropped off at hospital with gunshot wounds.

He was treated and released.

At 5:50 p.m. that day, police found an abandoned vehicle believed to have been involved in the shooting.

About an hour later, police were called to 127 Street and 78 Avenue with reports of another shooting.

Shortly after, a second vehicle arrived at the hospital with two other males, plus another 20-year-old victim that had been shot.

It appears that a vehicle came up beside a black vehicle, and a number of shots were fired at the vehicle, one of which struck the victim.

Then, at 11 p.m., Surrey RCMP received several calls reporting gunfire in the area of 128 Street and 76 Avenue.

All people believed to be involved had fled by the time police arrived.

Investigators were told by witnesses that four dark-coloured vehicles were seen leaving the area at a high rate of speed.

Surrey Mounties believe all the incidents are targeted and related.

Police are collecting video surveillance and talking to neighbours and other witnesses.

The Surrey RCMP Gang Enforcement Team has been brought in to determine if the shootings are gang related.

“This type of activity is deeply concerning to the Surrey RCMP and the community” says Sgt. Dale Carr, Surrey RCMP spokesperson. “We are urging anyone with information regarding these shootings to come forward. It is imperative that you do, before someone else is seriously injured or killed.”

Anyone who observed anything about these incidents is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).
