  • 30 year old taxi passenger dies in Guildford shooting, taxi driver in hospital

On Tuesday afternoon, at approximately 2:20 p.m., Surrey RCMP received the report of shots fired at a taxi in a parking lot in the 14800 block of 108 Avenue.

Police attended the scene and found both occupants of the vehicle shot.

The passenger, a 30-year-old male died, and the driver of the taxi was transported to hospital with serious injuries. 

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been called and will be working in partnership with Surrey RCMP.

“Initial indications are that this was a targeted incident with the 20-year-old deceased man being known to police,” says, Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn. “This daytime shooting in a strip mall parking lot demonstrated a complete disregard for the safety of others and resulted in serious injuries to a taxi driver.” 

The area surrounding the scene will be cordoned off for an undetermined amount of time while police work to gather evidence.
