Surrey RCMP is investigating a shooting that injured one person Tuesday night (Feb. 16).
The incident happened near 145th Street and 82nd Avenue around 10:15 p.m. when police received calls of shots fired in the area, according to a release from Surrey RCMP.
The release adds frontline and gang enforcement officers were dispatched to the area, but police have not yet said if the shooting is gang-related.
Police said when officers arrived at the area, they found a male “suffering from gunshot wounds.” The release adds he was transported to hospital.
A Black Press Media freelancer on scene said the shooting happened on a “quiet dead-end street.”
The investigation, Surrey RCMP said, is still in its early stages, “but it does not appear to be a random act, but rather targeted at this male.”
Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or solvecrime.ca.
