Surrey: Surrey RCMP is currently investigating an incident of shots fired into a residence early this morning and are appealing for anyone with information to contact police.
On June 28, 2016 at 12:35am Surrey RCMP received a complaint of shots fired into a residence in the 10100 block of 127th Street. Upon attendance, police located bullet holes in the front door and front window. The family dog was also found deceased inside the residence and it’s believed the animal may have died from a gunshot wound. There was one person in the residence at the time of the incident that was unharmed.
Surrey RCMP’s General Investigation Unit is leading this investigation with assistance from the Lower Mainland Forensic Identification Services. Police are still at the scene gathering evidence and will be canvassing the neighbourhood for witnesses. At this point the incident appears to be targeted but not associated to the violence between low level drug dealers that spiked in March of this year.
“At this point we have not located any witnesses to this incident, but it’s possible someone in the neighborhood saw a person or vehicle that looked suspicious,” says Corporal Scotty Schumann. “We are asking anyone who may have seen anything at all to contact police with that information.”
