Gunfire erupts in Surrey hours after premier assures residents
Surrey RCMP are investigating another nighttime shooting in the city, which comes not even a day after the premier promised more money to fight gangs in the city.
According to police, they received several calls at about 10:25 p.m. on Tuesday with witnesses reporting gunshots in the area of 88th Ave. and 134B St. in Surrey.
After surveying the scene, RCMP said they found evidence consistent with shots being fired.
Despite the evidence of the shooting, no damage to homes has been found nor does anyone appear to be injured from the incident.
Earlier in the day, Premier Christy Clark promised a $270,000 funding boost to the Surrey Wraparound Program and its youth gang intervention program.
Both Clark and Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner also asked for the federal government to approve a request for 130 additional officers for the city to help crack down on violence in the city.
