Mounties are searching for a gunman following a drive-by shooting that put one man in hospital early Friday morning. 

Officers flooded the area of 144th Street and 92nd Avenue after receiving a report of gunshots around 2 a.m.

The victim had already left by the time they arrived, however, and somehow made his own way to Surrey Memorial Hospital suffering from a gunshot wound.

The extent of his injury is unconfirmed but he’s expected to survive.

Police believe the shooting was a drive-by, but haven’t released a suspect vehicle description.

They said the motive is unclear and it’s too early to tell if the incident was targeted.
