An early-morning shooting in Cloverdale Tuesday is believed to have injured two men.
Surrey RCMP say officers were dispatched to the 17900-block of 40 Avenue at about 5 a.m., in response to a report of shots fired.
At the scene, they discovered evidence of a marijuana grow-op and a possible shooting, but no victims.
About 20 minutes later, police learned that two people suffering from gunshot wounds were found in a parking lot across from Surrey Memorial Hospital.
The pair – two men in the 30s, both known to police – were taken to hospital in serious condition.
“These two incidents are still in the early stages of investigation, however, early indications are that they are related,” Sgt. Dale Carr states in a news release.
Anyone with information on either incident who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
