Asian Journal - - J2U5NAL -

Sur­rey: On Jan­uary 9, at ap­prox­i­mately 11:15 pm, Sur­rey RCMP Front­line of­fi­cers re­sponded to a re­port of a shoot­ing at a town­house com­plex in the 9500 block of Prince Charles Boule­vard. Po­lice re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that a 17 year old male had been shot and trans­ported to the hos­pi­tal.

Once on scene, in­ves­ti­ga­tors lo­cated ev­i­dence con­sis­tent with shots be­ing fired as well as a mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sion.

In­ves­ti­ga­tor’s be­lieve a light coloured Jeep Wran­gler drove into a grey Toy­ota Si­enna and then the driver of the Jeep fired a gun into the Si­enna. Both ve­hi­cles then quickly left the area.

The Si­enna at­tended Sur­rey Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal as a pas­sen­ger, a 17-year-old male, had se­ri­ous but non-life threat­en­ing in­juries from the shoot­ing. Shortly after the shoot­ing, of­fi­cers from the Metro Van­cou­ver Tran­sit Po­lice lo­cated the sus­pect ve­hi­cle and took the driver into cus­tody.

Both ve­hi­cles have been seized as part of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. In­ves­ti­ga­tor’s be­lieve this to be a tar­geted and iso­lated in­ci­dent. Early in­di­ca­tions are that this in­ci­dent is not re­lated to gang con­flict or drug traf­fick­ing. Sur­rey RCMP’S Se­ri­ous Crime Unit now has con­duct of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the driver re­mains in-cus­tody and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues.
