Two men shot in North Surrey neighbourhood

Surrey experiences its 38th shooting since March 9; Police say likely not connected to ongoing drug turf war.



Two men are in hospital after another shooting in North Surrey.

At about 1 a.m. Friday, police received calls of shots fired in the 12300-block of Iona Place in North Surrey. Police arrived to find two men suffering from gunshot wounds.

One, a man in his 20s, suffered serious injuries, but is expected to survive.

The second victim, also in his early 20s, received only minor wounds.

Neighbours report hearing multiple shots.

Suspects in the shooting have not been identified yet.

“Surrey RCMP is investigating this matter thoroughly with the Serious Crime Unit and Forensic Identification Services still on scene,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “Officers will be combing the area to identify more witnesses and any evidence. This appears to have been a targeted shooting and police don’t believe there is any further risk to the public.”

It is Surrey’s 38th shooting in the last 109 days.

About half of those are believed to be the result of a drug turf war over a dial-a-dope operation.

Police say that there has been nothing so far to link this shooting with the others.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or www.solvecrime.ca.
