SURREY (NEWS 1130) – Both men shot last night in Surrey have now died.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken over a case.

It happened at 159th Street and 110th Avenue near an elementary school. One man was pronounced dead at the scene and the other passed away in the hospital this morning.

One person called to say she was told it was a drive-by shooting around 7:30 p.m.
