A woman is recovering from gunshot wounds following a shooting in Surrey Tuesday evening.
R-C-M-P were called to an area near 160th Street and 96th Ave before 9 p-m for a report of a dropped 9-1-1 call, with further calls received about shots fired while officers were on the way.
Officers found the injured woman when they arrived at the scene, and a male suspect was taken into custody. The woman is being treated for her injuries in hospital.
The motive for the shooting is unknown, and investigators are canvassing the neighbourhood and speaking with witnesses.
This marks the fifth shooting for the Lower Mainland.
