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.
