SHOOT­ING AN EX­AM­PLE OF ‘ON­GO­ING TRAUMA’ IN SUR­REY: MAYOR

The Globe and Mail (BC Edition) - - BRITISH COLUMBIA -

SUR­REY, B. C. Moun­ties in Sur­rey, B.C., say they’re in­ves­ti­gat­ing the ap­par­ent shoot­ing death of a man found out­side a home in the New­ton neigh­bour­hood.

Po­lice say they re­ceived a call at about 1:30 a.m. Fri­day that a man was on the ground and when of­fi­cers ar­rived the adult vic­tim had died. The In­te­grated Homi­cide In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team has been called in to work with the RCMP to in­ves­ti­gate the death.

Sur­rey Mayor Doug McCal­lum re­leased a state­ment say­ing the death is “yet an­other ex­am­ple of the on­go­ing trauma and fear that are be­ing in­flicted on the com­mu­ni­ties, res­i­dents and fam­i­lies of Sur­rey.”

One of the mayor’s re­cent elec­tion promises was to get rid of the RCMP in favour of a mu­nic­i­pal force, and Mr. McCal­lum says coun­cil is mov­ing rapidly on that front.
