Shot fired in South Surrey

RCMP confirm gunshot on Croydon Drive after males spotted trying to enter home Saturday night.

Surrey RCMP confirmed a gunshot was fired in the 3000-block of Croydon Drive Saturday night.

A gunshot fired in South Surrey sent police to a Croydon Drive home Saturday night.

Police confirmed that officers with the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team and the Integrated Police Dog Unit attended a home in the 3000-block of Croydon at around 11 p.m. May 30, after a number of callers reported that a group of males were trying to get inside.

Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr said the incident is not believed to be linked to a spree of shootings in Surrey and Delta in recent months that have been attributed to the low-level drug trade.

“This looks like it was somebody looking for some sort of person, or perhaps a grow-rip or something,” Carr told Peace Arch News Monday.

One witness reported a gunshot, and police say evidence found at the scene confirmed a shot was fired. No injuries were reported, and there was no evidence the culprits were able to get inside.

Due to the darkness, witnesses had limited details on the intruders, who were described as young and wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
