      A series of shootings that took place in Surrey and Delta on the weekend are under investigation, and police are seeking to speak with any witnesses.

      Surrey RCMP stated today (August 9) that three incidents involving gunfire took place in Surrey on August 7, including:

      • at 8:19 p.m. in the 6900 block of 127A Street;
      • at 10:27 p.m. in the 12900 block of 73A Avenue;
      • at 10:56 p.m. in the 6600 block of 132 Street.

      Surrey RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Vanessa Munn stated that some vehicles and one residence were damaged in these shootings but no one was injured.

      A fourth incident occurred at 11:33 p.m. on August 7 in the 7900 block of 114A Street in North Delta. The Delta Police Department (DPD) stated that one unoccupied vehicle was damaged in this incident.

      After midnight on August 8, officers apprehended a 28-year-old male suspect, who is believed to be connected to all four incidents.

      Although the investigation is in its early stages, both Surrey RCMP and the DPD (who are working together) stated that investigators, who haven’t determined a motive yet, believe that these shootings aren’t related to the Lower Mainland gang conflict.

      Any witnesses or anyone with information or footage is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502; the DPD at 604-946-4411; or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
