Police are in South Surrey this morning (Friday) – just east of Morgan Crossing – after shots were fired, leaving one man with injuries.

The incident, in the 15900-block of 26 Avenue, “appears to have been targeted,” said Const. Richard Wright.

“There is not believed to be any ongoing threat to public safety.”

Police were alerted just after 2 a.m. Jan. 3.

Upon arrival, evidence was located confirming that shots had been fired, including one person suffering from an apparent gun shot wound. The victim, described as a man in his early 30s, was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers are canvassing the neighbourhood and speaking with witnesses to obtain further information.

Wright said no arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.

Officers were expected to be in the area for an undetermined period of time.

Police were still on the scene, apparently focused on a townhouse on the south side of 26 Avenue, as of just after 8 a.m. Friday.
