Surrey RCMP are looking for a pair of vehicles after a brazen daylight shooting in the Newton area.
Police say they were called around 2:30 this afternoon after multiple calls about shots being fired from one vehicle at another at the intersection of 72nd Ave. and 124th Street.
By the time officers arrived, both vehicles had fled. It’s unclear if anyone was hurt in the gunfight, but investigators say no one has admitted themselves to hospital with gunshot wounds.
Police say two other, unrelated vehicles were hit by one of the suspect vehicles as it fled. Police had originally believed a bystander vehicle was hit by stray bullets but later issued a correction. No one in that vehicle was hurt.
Investigators are now looking for a dark coloured SUV with an Alberta plate reading K80469 and a dark coloured Honda.
It’s just the latest in a string of gun violence South of the Fraser that has left one person dead and seen officers called to dozens of shootings since early spring.
Police have attributed the violence to a simmering low-level drug turf war.
Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS.
