A Surrey man shot after a verbal fight in his front yard on Tuesday remains in critical condition.

RCMP said the man was approached by four men at his home in the 8600-block of 155 Street around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

He was shot at least once in the stomach and was rushed to hospital, said Cpl. Bert Paquet.

It was not immediately known if the victim and his attackers knew each other.

There is little suspect information at this time, Paquet said, and police are asking any witnesses to come forward.
