Man shot in Whalley

Victim suffered gunshot wound to the arm in the 13300 block of King George Boulevard early Thursday morning.

A 28-year-old Surrey man is in hospital after he was shot in the forearm.

At 1:20 a.m.Thursday, police responded to a report of shots fired outside the Cedar Park Garden apartment complex in the 13300-block of King George Boulevard, where they found an injured male who reported being shot while investigating a noise outside.

“The victim went outside the multi-unit apartment complex, where he was visiting at the time, to inquire what the smashing sound was and subsequently was shot in the arm,” said RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “At this point in time, we’ve detained one male for questioning. However, it’s too early in the investigation to say if he is the actual person responsible for the shooting or not.”

Paquet said that “based on the fact that we’re familiar with most of the people associated to that unit that this was not a random attack,” and police are still trying to establish possible suspect(s) and motive.

He said it’s too early to tell if the shooting was drug- or gang-related.

The victim was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and is co-operating with police.

Officers have identified and interviewed at least 10 witnesses in the case so far.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at at at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
