RCMP investigate two shootings in Surrey

Incidents happened in Whalley, Newton

The Surrey RCMP are investigating two shootings in two different areas of the city Friday (July 19).

Police responded to reports of shots fired in the 12700-block of King George Boulevard in Whalley around 4 p.m. Friday, according to a press release from the Surrey RCMP, adding that “evidence was located confirming that shots had been fired.”

Initial reports, police said, had a white car leaving the area “at a high rate of speed.”

Police described it as a targeted incident, despite the investigation still being in the early stages.

Several hours later, Mounties responded to a report of a shooting near Mud Bay Park, just off Colebrook Road around 7 p.m.

Mud Bay Park and a section of Colebrook Road were closed while police investigated at the scene.

Again, they found evidence “to support that shots had been fired in the area.”

At the same time, police said, officers responded to the 17300-block of 56th Avenue in Cloverdale where the caller “stated he was and police located a subject suffering from a gunshot wound.” The man was taken to hospital for treatment.

Then, at 7:20 p.m., the Langley RCMP responded to a report of a 22-year-old man who was suffering from a gunshot wound walking into Langley Memorial Hospital.

Access to the hospital was restricted for a period of time after the man arrived at the ER.

The Langley RCMP said the man’s injuries were not considered to be life-threatening.

Surrey RCMP said officers determined the man at the hospital was “associated” to the earlier shooting at Mud Bay Park.

On Monday, Surrey RCMP Corporal Elenore Sturko said the pair of shooting are “not related” and that the Mud Bay incident “is believed to have taken place between individuals known to each other.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or solvecrime.ca.
