Mounties are now in custody of the man they believe shot someone at a convenience store this week.

He is the suspect in Surrey's latest shooting.

On Tuesday, at 11:30 p.m., two men walked into a Mac's Convenience store at 152 Street and 100 Avenue and went to the back of the store.

That was when one of them drew a gun, and shot the other in the back, with the bullet causing also causing damage to his groin.

Police believe Dhaliwal was the person who shot the victim.

Mounties have not been able to ascertain whether the shooting was intentional or not.

The Langley resident is now wanted for criminal negligence causing bodily harm, carrying a concealed weapon, careless use of a firearm, unauthorized used of a firearm and possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition.

He was expected to make a court appearance Friday afternoon.
