Surrey RCMP say one person died and two others injured after a shooting in south Surrey on Saturday (July 30).
At approximately 2:45 p.m., police responded to a report of a shooting in the 14600 block of 20th Avenue, according to a statement from Surrey RCMP.
The statement said that when officers arrived they found three male victims “in medical distress with gunshot wounds”, adding that they “provided lifesaving measures” until paramedics arrived.
Despite this, one of the injured men died at the scene. Police said the other two victims were taken to hospital with “life-threatening injuries”.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has been called, Surrey RCMP said.
The statement added that the initial investigation shows “this was a targeted incident”, but the investigation is in its early stages and police are currently in the evidence-gathering phase.
“At this time, there are no public safety concerns.”
Surrey RCMP are now looking for witnesses and anyone with dash cam footage to contact police.
Anyone with further information who has not yet spoken to police is asked to contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email [email protected] gc.ca.
