Several people are in custody following reports of shots fired into a home in Whalley Saturday morning (Dec. 7).
Sergeant Roger Green, with Surrey RCMP, said the major crimes unit is investigating and “quite a few people” were taken into custody.
“I believe, I think, it’s 11 that are in custody,” Green told the Now-Leader.
Surrey RCMP were on scene in the 10800-block of 139A Street Saturday after reports of shots fired into a Whalley home around 4:55 a.m., according to a news release.
One house, on the east side of 139A Street, had at least one bullet hole through a window on the second floor.
The investigation, police said in the release, “led officers to another residence also on 139A Street.”
A house across the street was also behind police tape.
“Our investigation led us to another house on the street and that’s where we called the people out from,” Green said. “We were trying to make contact with people in a house, and they eventually all came out and they’ve been taken into custody for investigation.”
Green said he didn’t know the connection between the two homes, and “whether the people knew each other or not.”
There were no injuries reported, Green said.
Police had 139A Street closed between 108th an 109th avenues.
On July 25, Surrey RCMP also responded to reports of shots fired in the 10800-block of 193A Street, when a man was “apparently” shot in the leg.
Asked if there was any connection to the July 25 shooting, Green said, “Not that I know of, not to my knowledge.”
