Surrey RCMP say one person is dead and two other are injured after a shooting in South Surrey Saturday (July 30).
Around 2:45 p.m., police responded to a report of a shooting in the 14600-block of 20 Avenue, according to a release from Surrey RCMP.
The release says when officers arrived, they found three male victims “in medical distress suffering from gunshot wounds,” adding they “provided life-saving measures” until paramedics arrived.
Despite that, one of the injured men died at scene. Police say the other two victims were taken to hospital with “life-threatening injuries.”
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has been called in, Surrey RCMP say.
The release adds that the initial investigation show “that this was a targeted incident,” but the investigation is in the early stages and police are currently in the evidence-gathering phase.
“At this point in time, there is no concern for public safety.”
Surrey RCMP is now looking for witnesses and anyone with dash-cam footage to contact police.
Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
