Shooting in Surrey related to ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict (updated)

SURREY RCMP Serious Crimes Unit has taken conduct of Monday night’s shooting and serious collision in Guildford with the cooperation of several other units, including the Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstructionist Services, Integrated Forensic Identification Team, and the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team.

At this time investigators believe that this was a targeted incident which transpired between persons known to each other and related to Lower Mainland gang activity.

Officers located one man with apparent gunshot injuries, and a second man with serious injures which are believed to be a result of the collision. Both of these males were transported to hospital in serious condition. Firearms were located and seized at the scene of the collision.

Five men, ranging in ages from 18 to 26, who are known to police, were detained for investigative purposes. Charges have not been laid as the investigation is ongoing.

Two vehicles were directly involved in this incident: a blue Honda Civic, and a grey Dodge Charger. At this time, it is believed that shots were fired by the occupants of one of the two vehicles involved, and it is not believed there was an exchange of gunfire between the vehicles.

Investigators believe that the vehicles involved may have been engaged in dangerous driving in the area of 148th Avenue and 108th Street prior to the reports of shots fired in the 15300-block of 102A Street, at 9 p.m.

Anyone who may have been a witness to these events, who may have dash cam video, or other information is asked to call Surrey RCMP.

Investigators will be conducting neighbourhood inquiries around both scenes as well areas in between the scenes.

Although there was a risk to public safety as these events unfolded, there are no indications of a continued risk to the public as a result of this incident.

Anyone with further information who has not already spoken with police or may have dash-cam video, is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
