File # 2017-91143
On July 4th 2017 at approximately 8:30 PM Surrey RCMP received a report of a shooting in a parking lot near the 14800 block of 108 Avenue. Once police were on scene they located a 29 year old man from Coquitlam suffering from multiple gunshot injuries inside a vehicle. The man was immediately transported to a regional trauma hospital. He is in serious but stable condition, and expected to survive.
A short distance from the scene officers arrested a man matching the suspect description. Further investigation eliminated this person as a suspect and he was released from custody. Surrey RCMP Serious Crime Unit is leading this investigation.
At this point police are able to say this appears to be a targeted incident and the victim is known to police. It is too early to say whether this incident is linked to drugs, gangs or any other incident that has recently occurred in the city or region.
The Lower Mainland District Forensic Investigation Section is on scene gathering all evidence to be processed, as is the Surrey RCMP Serious Crime Section.
If you saw the shooting or the suspects, or if you know any of suspects, police would like to speak to you, says Staff Sergeant Dale CARR Watch Commander, Surrey RCMP.
What you saw, no matter how insignificant you think the detail is, may help police move the investigation forward.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
