File # 2017-93863
On July 9th at approximately 3:30pm, Surrey RCMP received multiple 911 calls reporting a shooting between two parties in separate vehicles. The shooting occurred at a residential area in the 7700 block of 147A Street. Surrey RCMP attended to the location and located an adult female suffering from a minor gunshot injury. At this time it is believed that the adult female was an unintended victim. It is the belief of investigators that the intended victims departed the area in a black Hyundai vehicle. The black Hyundai was last seen with front end damage and the bumper had fallen off. The suspects were seen fleeing the area in red pickup truck.
Moments later, and a short distance away, police received reports of a red pickup truck on fire in the 9000 block of 150th Street. Witnesses report that two males were seen fleeing the area.
Surrey RCMP Serious Crime investigators believe that this was a targeted event between two parties that were known to each other in some manner. Investigators will be canvassing the area of both scenes to see if evidence to support the investigation can be located. The Lower Mainland District Forensic Investigation Section will be on scene to process evidence in support of the investigation.
This is very concerning behaviour to both the police and the community, says Surrey RCMP Staff Sergeant Dale Carr.
The same small group of people consistently place a stain on this great city and endanger its citizens.
Anyone who may have witnessed this event or witnessed the males fleeing from the area are asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or go to www.solvecrime.ca.
