SURREY, B.C. -- A man is in hospital in serious, but stable condition after a shooting on Highway 99 Monday night.

RCMP were called to the 135000-block of the highway just before 7:30 p.m. after multiple people called 911 to report a fight between two men.

When they arrived, officers found one man suffering from gunshot wounds.

He was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but is expected to survive.

A second man was arrested on scene and taken into custody.

RCMP say he will appear in court Tuesday.

“Both men are associated to a single vehicle that has been seized by police. A firearm was also recovered from the scene by police,” said Sgt. Elenore Sturko of Surrey RCMP in a news release.

Investigators on scene seemed to focus on a black pickup truck that was parked on the side of the highway.

Mounties say it appears the men knew each other and are also known to police.

“There is no indication at this time that this shooting is related to the Lower Mainland gang conflict, however police are investigating possible links to the drug trade,” said Sturko.

There is not believed to be any on-going risk to the public.

“It's very disturbing to the public and it is a concern for us,” explained Sturko.

“Obviously when this incident unfolded it would have posed a significant risk to members of the public. Whenever a firearm is used in the condition of an offense, even among those who are known to one another, it does put the public at risk.”

Highway 99 was shut down in both directions between Highway 91 and Ladner Trunk Road for nearly 10 hours while the investigation was underway.

About three hours after the shooting, RCMP say an officer on scene was involved in a serious crash.

Both the officer and the driver were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say they believe the alcohol was a factor in the civilian driver's crash. 

The accident further delayed the reopening of the Highway.

Tow trucks arrived shortly after 5 a.m. to and removed a smashed car and a police vehicle.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers if you wish to remain anonymous at 1-800-222-8477.
