UPDATE: No suspects or arrests after ‘targeted’ Cloverdale shooting

Surrey RCMP say no one was injured but brazen daylight shooting has neighbours concerned

Update: Police said Tuesday there are no suspects and there have been no arrests made in what they’re describing as a “targeted incident.”

The family in the vehicle targeted is known to police, says Surrey RCMP.

This was the 42nd shooting in Surrey so far this year.

Surrey RCMP are investigating an alleyway in Cloverdale after bullets struck an occupied Jeep and a house late Sunday morning.

According to a release, police responded to reports of shots fired in the 17200 block of 65 Ave just before 11 a.m. No one was injured in what Mounties believe was was a targeted incident.

In a press release, RCMP said a dark coloured Chevy, possibly a Malibu, was seen fleeing east along 64 Avenue shortly after the gunfire.

Neighbours told Black Press that Mounties at the scene said the car was found abandoned nearby but police have yet to confirm this.

Investigators, including an RCMP forensics team, canvassed the area for hours. Shell casings were marked off in the middle of the laneway.

The street is just blocks away from where a 22-year-old was gunned down in his driveway in late August.

Despite this, neighbours said that the area was typically a quiet neighbourhood and one woman remarked that she had been happy with her recent choice to move there.

Chantelle, who moved to the neighbourhood just a few months ago, said she thought she heard gunshots but couldn’t be sure.

“I was on the phone… and you don’t expect it to be [gunfire],” Chantelle said.

Leeanne Ramage has lived in the area for four years and said she’s seen an increase in non-violent crime recently.

“Recently, there’s been signs posted around the neighbourhood of locking your doors, locking your cars,” said Ramage. Her own car was broken into just recently, she added.

“But not violence, no.”

She’s worried about kids playing out on the streets now.

“You don’t want them out playing if this can happen at 11 a.m.,” said Ramage.

Chantelle agreed.

“It’s an alley – I grew up on an alley. You went inside when the sun went down, when the streetlights went on,” she said. “It looks like that’s not really a thing you can do nowadays, which is sad.”
