Summary

Surrey RCMP received three reports of gunfire Saturday night

A fourth report of gunfire in Delta is believed to be related

No one was hurt and one man has been arrested

SURREY (NEWS 1130) – The sound of gunshots cracked through residential neighbourhoods in Surrey and Delta over the weekend, hitting cars and homes. A man has been arrested, though it’s unclear what the motive was.

Three of the incidents happened Saturday between 8:19 and 10:56 p.m. in Surrey. The first report came from a residential section of 127a Street at 61a Ave, while the second was on 73a Avenue near Todd Crescent Park, and the third was around 132 Street near 66a Avenue.

Another report of shots fired at 11:33 p.m. on 114a Avenue in Delta is believed to be related.

A 28-year-old man was arrested just past midnight on Aug. 8. Police say they have not established a motive yet, but don’t think it’s connected to the ongoing gang conflict in the Lower Mainland.

“While the shots fired resulted in some damage to vehicles and a residence, thankfully nobody was injured.” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Vanessa Munn said.

Officers are canvassing the neighbourhoods affect and speaking with witnesses. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or solvecrime.ca.
