Surrey RCMP are investigating the shooting of a woman in Newton.

Surrey woman shot in front of her son

Police are investigating whether the shooter then drove to 24 Avenue and King George Boulevard and shot himself

A woman is recovering after being shot in front of her young son in Newton early Friday morning.

Police are now investigating the possibility that the shooting could be linked to a man who shot himself in his car at 24 Avenue and King George Boulevard shortly after.

As of Friday morning, he was in critical condition.

At just after midnight, Surrey RCMP were called to a report of shots fired at 127 Street and 63 Avenue.

They arrived to find a 35-year-old Surrey woman who had been shot in the hand and shoulder by an unknown gunman.

Mounties are investigating the possibility that it may have been a domestic shooting and whether the gunman was lying in wait.

The woman suffered non-life threatening injuries, and her 10-year-old son is shaken up, but otherwise physically unharmed.

More to come.
