Surrey shooting: 2 seriously injured in targeted Fraser Heights incident
Two men were rushed to hospital with serious injuries after being shot in the Fraser Heights neighbourhood, according to Surrey RCMP.
The shooting took place near a school and two daycares in the area of 160 Street and 111 Avenue at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
"We heard some sirens and then we saw one cop car and then another. They were just flying down the street," one resident told CTV News.
A spokesperson for one of the nearby daycares, Little Friends, told CTV News it was put in lockdown just before 5 p.m.
"It's the first day of school for everybody, that's scary – that's really scary," resident Lydie Guerineau said.
From CTV News Vancouver's Chopper 9, police officers could be seen looking at a black sedan with bullet holes, which appeared to have veered off the road and into the lawn of a home.
Evidence markers peppered the neighbourhood and a large area was blocked off to allow investigators gather evidence and information.
"Early indications are that this was a targeted incident. While the public was placed at risk as this incident unfolded, there are no indications of a continued risk," said Cpl. Elenore Sturko in a release.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or leave an anonymous tip at 1-800-222-TIPS.
