Surrey RCMP is continuing to investigate a shooting that occurred in the parking area of Fleetwood Park at 5:50 p.m. on July 5, 2023, and are appealing for public assistance in locating one of the suspect vehicles believed to be involved.

Surrey Detachment Frontline officers with assistance from the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team, (SGET), Surrey Drug Enforcement Team and the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Services (PDS), responded to a report of shots fired between up to three vehicles that had fled the Fleetwood Park area of 158 Street and 80 Avenue upon police attendance.

Officers located one of the suspect vehicles with four occupants inside, a black Nissan Altima, at Fraser Highway and 148 Street. Three of the occupants were detained, and the fourth, an 18-year-old man, was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

As the investigation unfolded, officers tracked down a second suspect vehicle, a white Tesla and a 16-year-old male was detained. The investigation is continuing and no charges have currently been laid.

Investigators continue to search for a third suspect vehicle believed to be involved in the incident, a black Honda Civic that was seen fleeing the Fleetwood Park area at the time of the shooting.

The investigation is being led by the Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit (GIU) with assistance from the Surrey RCMP Forensic Identification Section (FIS). The individuals involved in this incident are believed to be known to each other and are linked to drug activity.

This shooting between vehicles occurred early on a summer evening right near a busy park in our community, states Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Sergeant Tammy Lobb. Those involved in this type of violence show a complete disregard for others, and our investigators are working hard to piece together the events that unfolded on our streets through a thorough review of all the evidence.

Anyone who has information or dash cam footage is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 and quote file number 2023-11367.
