It’s too early to know whose involved in the latest set of shots fired in Surrey, according to Staff Sergeant Murray Hedderson.
“In this one here we have no idea. Nobody observed any people or any vehicles in the area, so we at this point don’t know what we’re looking for.”
Shots were heard around 10:25 last night near the area of 88th avenue and 134B street – with evidence confirming it took place one block down at 88 A avenue and 134B Street.
RCMP Officers are canvassing the scene, but at this point Hedderson says he honestly doesn’t know if these new shootings are related to the gang turf war that has plagued the streets of Surrey over the past 7 weeks.
No suspect or suspects are in custody and no injured people have been found.
Adding to this busy night for Surrey RCMP, just six blocks from where shots were fired, a few hours earlier at 7:30pm, Surrey RCMP were called to a residence in the 8200 block of 134th street.
The call came from the residents of the home who had an unwanted guest forcibly enter their home and the occupants quickly fled – feeling concerned for their safety.
A 34 year old man known to police remained inside the home, damaged the inside and then proceeded to barracade himself inside.
The man, spotted with a weapon, was eventually talked in to coming out after a negotiator arrived on scene.
He’s been taken in to custody with charges pending.
No injuries in this incident.
RCMP Staff Sergeant Murray Hedderson says the two incidents are not related.
