Christopher Boucher, 30, has been charged with one count of unlawfully discharging a prohibited or restricted firearm, one count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, one count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm without being the holder of an authorization or licence and one count of occupying a vehicle knowing there was a prohibited or restricted firearm in the vehicle.

Jamie Tibbs, 42, has been charged with one count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, one count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm without being the holder of an authorization or licence and one count of occupying a vehicle knowing there was a prohibited or restricted firearm in the vehicle.

A third person has been released without charges.

“Thanks to the detailed information provided by witnesses and quick response by our frontline officers, we were able to apprehend the suspects quickly,” said Superintendent Elija Rain. “Members of our general investigation unit believe that this was a targeted incident related to a personal dispute. We do not believe it was related to the Lower Mainland gang conflict.”

It was the first report of shots fired in Surrey in 2019. There were 38 in 2018, and 59 in 2017. In 2016 there were 61, and 88 in 2015.
