TWO Surrey males in their mid-twenties and known to police suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds on Thursday night. Police said it appeared to be a targeted incident.
The crime drama appeared to be a continuation of the senseless violence that has plagued the city in the past few weeks involving mainly South Asians involved in low level drug crime.
On March 26 at about 8:40 p.m., Surrey RCMP received a number of 911 calls about gunshots being in the area of 88th Avenue and 124th Street.
Even as police were on their way to the crime scene, they received additional calls reporting two vehicles driving erratically in the area of 88th Avenue and 124A Street.
One vehicle was described as a white Ford Escape and the other vehicle was described as a dark coloured S.U.V. Police attended to the scene, and made patrols to track down the vehicles. A short time later, two males attended the hospital in a white Ford Escape. Both were suffering gunshot wounds, but were not forthcoming with information.
Surrey R.C.M.P. are seeking the public’s assistance and are asking anyone that may have witnessed the incident, or observed the vehicles driving away from the scene, to call the Surrey R.C.M.P. at 604-599-0502 or CrimeStoppers.
