Two men hurt in ‘targeted’ Surrey shooting

Police say there are ‘no indications of a continued risk’ to the public

Two men were hurt in what police are calling a “targeted” shooting in Fraser Heights Tuesday afternoon.

Surrey RCMP responded to multiple reports of gunfire at approximately 4:50 p.m. on Sept. 3, in the 15900-block of 111th Avenue.

Officers arrived and found two men suffering from “apparent gun-shot wounds.”

Police say both men were taken to the hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

Footage from the scene shows a black Chrysler 300 riddled with bullet holes, sitting on a grass lawn in a residential area.

According to a Black Press freelancer at the scene, “two victims were shot while in a Chrysler 300 that was on 111th Ave then sped off and crashed onto the lawn of a home on 150th Street.”

Surrey RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit is investigating.

“Early indications are that this was a targeted incident,” according to an RCMP press release. “While the public was placed at risk as this incident unfolded, there are no indications of a continued risk.”
