Surrey RCMP were on scene at a Fleetwood house Saturday (Feb. 5) after a shooting.
The shooting happened at a house in the 16400-block of 86B Avenue around 2 a.m. on Feb. 5, but Surrey RCMP say officers responded to a report of shots fired at a residence around 9:23 a.m.
A Black Press Media freelancer on scene said “at least” three shots struck the side of a large two-storey house, and there were “several bullet casings on the roadway (and) sidewalk as well as a couple in the yard of the residence.”
On Tuesday, Cpl. Vanessa Munn said the Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit had taken over the investigation and the incident “appears to be targeted and possibly stemming from a personal conflict.”
The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made yet.
While there was “minor property damage,” Munn said there were no injuries reported.
As of Feb. 5, there has been one homicide and at least 13 confirmed incidents of shots fired, according to Surrey RCMP, but only locations of eight incidents have been confirmed.
Earlier this week, after a shooting at a different house in Newton, Surrey RCMP Cpl. Vanessa Munn told the Now-Leader the detachment does not send out news releases for every shots fired call officers attend.
“A determination is made based on the circumstances of the incident with public safety/ interest and investigational needs taken into consideration.”
More to come.
