  • Sunday morning South Surrey shooting leaves bullet holes in residence, burnt vehicle located

Surrey RCMP is investigating shots fired at a residence in South Surrey. 

In the early morning hours on Sunday, August 14th,  at 12:38 a.m., Surrey RCMP received a report of shots fired at a residence with a vehicle heard speeding away in the 2600-block of 176Street. Officers attended the scene of the shooting and spoke with a homeowner who located bullet holes in the exterior of their residence. No one was reported injured as a result of this shooting.

Via release, Mounties say within minutes of the initial report of shots fired, they received the report of a vehicle fully engulfed in flames near 28 Avenue and 194A Street.

The engulfed vehicle was determined to be previously stolen from the Kelowna area. Given the timing and proximity of these two incidents, police believe them to be linked. 

While still early in the investigation, police believe the shooting is targeted and are looking at connections to the Lower Mainland gang conflict.

Surrey RCMP is working closely with partners on this investigation, including the Integrated Forensic Identification Section and CFSEU-BC.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP.
