More gunfire in Surrey Saturday night.
Surrey RCMP are at the scene of a home in the 16000 block of 93rd Avenue near 160th Street.
Police were called at about 10:30 PM, discovering evidence of shots fired in the area.
Nobody was injured.
Police say a light-coloured SUV was seen fleeing the scene shortly after.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Surrey RCMP, or Crime-stoppers.
This marks the 33rd shooting already in 2016, putting the city well on its way to surpass last year’s total of 47 documented shootings.
More funding for Gangs and Guns strategy
It was just on Friday that Premier Christy Clark announced the Province will be contributing $23 million to funding aimed at combating gang violence in B.C.
“It means more integrated police teams, it means more prosecutors who are specifically dedicated to combating gang violence, it means more supports for RCMP officers on the ground, it ensures the RCMP can continue to build on the gains they have made in our very successful guns and gangs strategy.”
Clark also had a warning for those involved in the violence.
“We will not rest until we put an end to this cycle of violence in this city, and cities across the province, and we’re going to continue to give the RCMP and police forces the support that they need to go after these low life, low-level criminals, who are making people unsafe.”
Surrey’s top cop promises to stop the violence
Bill Fordy says the recent gun violence is his detachment’s top priority.
“I can tell you, we will stop this conflict but I’m worried about the conflict next year and the year after that and the year after that, to me the answer is the long term solution of education and engagement.”
