A male was shot in Surrey’s Cloverdale area in the early hours of Thursday.
On January 4, at approximately 3:30 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a report of shots fired in the 17400-block of 64th Avenue. Police subsequently located a male inside a vehicle suffering from gunshot injuries at that location.
The male was transported to hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. The suspect or suspects fled the scene in a vehicle prior to police arrival. There are no suspect descriptions available.
Officers are conducting a neighbourhood canvas and speaking with witnesses to obtain further information. The investigation is still in its early stages but initial indications are that this is likely a targeted incident. It is too early to determine if this incident is related to drugs or other shootings, police said.
Traffic in the area was temporarily disrupted as officers investigated, however, the eastbound lanes of 64th Avenue have now been reopened.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 and quote file #2018-1547.
