Man shot in groin inside Surrey Mac’s; police seek suspect
Police are hunting for a suspect after a man suffered a gunshot wound to the groin in a Surrey convenience store.
The shooting happened at around 11:30 p.m. at a Mac’s store on 152 Street near 100 Avenue Tuesday night, according to police.
Two men pulled up to the store in a pickup truck and entered the store before getting into an argument, resulting in one of the men firing a shot, police said.
The clerk on duty told CTV News he was in the back storage room when he heard a gunshot ring out. He called 911 and came out to find the victim, who was still conscious, lying on the floor.
The man was rushed to Royal Columbian Hospital, where he underwent surgery Wednesday morning. His injuries are not considered life-threatening.
The victim's identity has not been released, and police said they have a good idea of who the shooter is.
Dog teams were brought in as officers searched for the shooter.
