• Another shooting in Surrey pushes total to 30 this year

    Surrey RCMP on scene at the latest shooting in the city on 128 St between 104 and 105 Ave in Surrey BC., May 8, 2015.

    Shots rang out once again in Surrey Sunday, less than a day after a shooting near an elementary school.

    Surrey RCMP said it received several calls about a shooting between two vehicles at the intersection of 88th Avenue and 132 Street at around 5:45 p.m. 

    An SUV and a car were stopped on a red light in two adjacent lanes when occupants of the SUV fired several shots into the car. Both vehicles then drove off in opposite directions, with the SUV last seen fleeing southbound on 132 Street and the car heading north.

    No injuries have been reported. 

    Police shut down the intersection for a few hours as officers interviewed witnesses and gathered casings and other evidence. There have been no arrests or suspects, said police.

    It is not yet known if this shooting — the city’s 30th — is linked to a spate of recent shootings, including one Saturday night near Kirkbride Elementary on 92nd Avenue near 122 Street.

    One person was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries in that incident. 

    The weekend shootings started a day after Surrey Mounties revealed shootings are on the rise again this year, with 28 confirmed incidents to date by Friday.

    Five people have been injured and one killed in the incidents, which police believe are targeted and related to an ongoing battle for drug territory.
