Surrey man shot in leg

Police are looking for information that might lead to a motive

A man is recovering in hospital after being shot in the leg on the long weekend.

On Monday, May 20 at about 11:15 a.m., a man in the 13000 block 103A Avenue heard a knock on his door.

When he opened it, he said there was a “dazed looking man” bleeding from the leg and asking for help.

The homeowner called 911, summoning police and emergency services.

When they arrived, the victim said he woke to two loud bangs and discovered he had a bleeding leg.

He was taken to hospital and was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the victim is “very well” known to them.

Surrey Mounties say the shooting was not gang related and are just trying to figure out the motive.

Anyone with any information about this shooting is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
