An early-morning shots-fired incident that sent an 18-year-old to hospital with minor injuries earlier this month involved Lower Mainland residents who were at a White Rock Airbnb, police have confirmed.
But police say they can’t yet share any other details regarding the Nov. 11 incident – including if anyone involved was actually from the White Rock/South Surrey area – as investigation into the matter is ongoing.
Police were alerted to an incident in the 15500-block of Columbia Avenue just after midnight Nov. 11, by “multiple complaints of shots fired.”
“Police responded and found evidence of a shooting, however no victim was located,” Staff Sgt. Daryl Creighton told PAN at the time. “While patrolling the area, police located the 18-year-old, male victim several blocks away.”
The victim was taken to hospital and later released.
A news release issued the next day said callers had reported hearing three to six “loud pops” from outside a residence, “which was later determined to be a short-term rental property.”
Police arrested two men and one male youth as a vehicle attempted to leave the scene, however, investigation cleared all three, the release added.
Sears said there have been no arrests or charges in connection with the incident since.
