A 28-year-old man is in custody after shots were fired four separate times within a few hours Saturday night (Aug. 7) in Surrey and North Delta.
Surrey RCMP say shots were fired three separate times in Surrey:
• 8:19 p.m. in the 6900-block of 127A Street
• 10:27 p.m. in the 12900-block of 73A Avenue
• 10:56 in the 6600-block of 132 Street
And in Delta, police also responded to a reported shots fired at 11:33 p.m. in the 7900-block of 114A Street. Police say they believe it is connected to the three Surrey incidents.
“While the shots fired resulted in some damage to vehicles and a residence, thankfully nobody was injured,” says Surrey RCMP media relations officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn. “All four incidents are believed to be connected to one suspect who is now in custody.”
While police have not yet established a motive for the shootings, they are not believed to be linked to the Lower Mainland gang conflict.
