Teen shooting in Whalley part of planned skirmish: Police

Surrey RCMP are urging parents of youths involved to come forward with details of what happened Tuesday night at Prince Charles Elementary.

Police say the shooting of a 17-year-old this week was the result of a pre-arranged fight between two groups.

On Tuesday (Dec. 1) at about 8:40 p.m., police were called to a shooting at Prince Charles Elementary, in the 12400-block of 100 Avenue.

When Mounties arrived, they found a 17-year-old suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Surrey RCMP say the shooting was the result of two groups who gathered at the school for a fight. They also say they have received minimal cooperation from the victim or anyone else associated with the altercation.

RCMP describe the investigation as being in the early stages, but police do not believe it is connected with the city’s ongoing turf war over dial-a-dope drug operations.

“Our officers will be working with the school district and parents of those who we believe are involved in this altercation to try to prevent these young persons from being involved in further incidents of this kind,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “This is also an opportunity for all parents and guardians to talk with their children about personal safety and being cautious of whom they associate with and the activities they are involved in.”

Anyone with further information about this incident 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 www.solvecrime.ca
