Surrey shooting tied to drug trade

The Vancouver Sun is reporting that "Surrey RCMP were called to reports of shots fired in the parking area of Fleetwood Park, in the 15800-block of 80th Avenue, shortly before 6 p.m. (Wednessday) Witnesses reported that one group of men fired shots at another group of men who were also in the parking lot.

Up to three vehicles were involved, said police in an update on Thursday. 'The apparent victim fled the scene in a vehicle and was located in the 14800-block of Fraser Highway,' said RCMP Staff Sgt. Tyner Gillies in a news release. The 18-year-old victim had a gunshot wound and was taken to a local hospital. His injury is not life-threatening, said Gillies. Three other people in the car, a black Nissan Altima, were detained. Officers later tracked down a second vehicle, a white Tesla, and a 16-year-old male was also detained.

“'Surrey RCMP is currently of the belief that the two groups of males were known to each other, and the shooting is targeted,' said Gillies. 'The victim is well-known to police, and is believed to be involved in the drug trade.'” Big surprise. 16 year old driving a tesla involved with the drug trade.
