A rolling gun battle took place in Surrey early this morning but miraculously no one was hurt according to police.
RCMP Staff Sergeant Murray Hedderson says it began when a gold coloured car pulled up beside another car at 124th Street and 68th Avenue, when the first shots rang out and the cars raced along.
“The first vehicle lost control at the intersection of 68th Avenue and 121st Street, striking a post. The gold coloured car pulled up behind the first vehicle, which was disabled as a result of the collision, and again shots were observed being fired at the first vehicle from the gold coloured car.”
Hedderson says the driver, known to police, was uninjured and with all the bullets flying around he says it was lucky no one else was either.
“It is a residential area. There are a number of family homes in the area.”
Police are hunting for the gold coloured car but at this point don’t have a make or model.
RCMP Sergeant Dale Carr says they are frustrated with the ongoing violence on Surrey’s streets.
“We’re very concerned that something tragic is going to happen. We have already had one tragedy in Arun Bains being murdered and we’re concerned for public safety.”
There have been two dozen shooting incidents in Surrey since the beginning of March.
Carr says so far this shooting has the earmarks of the previous incidents, but it’s too soon to say for certain they are linked.
