Surrey RCMP is currently investigating two shootings that has led police to a residence in Newton and resulted in a school closure.
At 12:15am on June 13th, Surrey RCMP received a report of shots fired involving two vehicles near 125th Street and 80th Avenue. When police arrived on scene the two vehicles were gone, however bullet casings were found. No injuries have been reported.
At 12:18am Surrey RCMP were called to the 13200 block of 67B Avenue after a drive by shooting. It appears a parked vehicle was the target. No injuries were reported at this scene either.
The police believe the two shootings are linked and the parties involved are known to each other, says Corporal Scotty Schumann.
Fortunately no injuries have been reported.
The subsequent investigation led police to a residence in the 12500 block of 58B Avenue. As a precaution, nearby J.T. Brown Elementary School, located at 12530 60 Avenue, was not opened this morning. Roads previously closed during the police operation have now been opened.
Surrey RCMP’s Serious Crimes Unit is leading this investigation. At this point, no persons remain in custody and no charges have been laid.
