ON Friday at about 4:45 p.m., Surrey RCMP received a call from a man that there was a man in the food court of Surrey City Centre Mall at 10200 King George Boulevard who had apparently been shot.
Police located the injured man who was found to be suffering from two gunshot wounds and was visibly bleeding.
Surrey RCMP said the man was initially uncooperative with police, but eventually agreed to be taken to hospital and was transported in serious condition.
Police say the man, who is a Surrey resident in his twenties and has had a number of police contacts in the past, has not been forthcoming with information as to where the shooting occurred. He has indicated that it occurred in another community, but has been evasive. Witnesses have indicated that the man took the SkyTrain to Surrey, getting off at the Surrey Central Station, and then went to the mall a short time before he was located by police.
Surrey R.C.M.P. are seeking the public’s assistance in trying to find out where the man may have been shot and if anyone may have seen him travelling on the SkyTrain to Surrey. They are asked to call the Surrey R.C.M.P. at 604-599-0502 or CrimeStoppers.
