  • Two residences in Surrey riddled with bullet holes after overnight shootings

On Tuesday, just after midnight, Surrey RCMP received a report of shots heard and a vehicle speeding away in the 14800-block of 76A Avenue. Officers attended the area, conducted patrols, and found a residence with bullet holes.

Via release, Mounties say approximately 20 minutes after the initial report of shots fired, police received a second report of a shooting in the 9200-block of 163 Street.

Similar to the first incident, responding officers located a residence with damage and evidence consistent with a shooting.

“Although no one was injured as a result of these shootings, incidents of this nature place members of our community at risk. We urge anyone with information to reach out to police.” says Surrey RCMP Media Relations officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn.

Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit has conduct of both investigations, which are in the early stages. Investigators are exploring the possibility that these two shootings may be linked.
