The Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit is on scene in a residential neighborhood in South Surrey following a shooting that injured one person.

On Monday (Nov. 27) just before noon, Surrey RCMP received multiple reports of shots fired in the 13900-block of 18B Avenue. Police attended the area and located evidence consistent with a shooting, but no victim was located, according to a Surrey RCMP release.

The victim has since been located at a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

At approximately 12:12 p.m., a vehicle was located on fire in the 17000-block of 30A Avenue.

“Although it is likely related to the shooting, further investigation is required to conclusively link to two incidents,” the release notes.
