Surrey’s first responders were busy throughout the night with two major but separate incidents.
During the early morning hours, an individual was killed in an apparent hit-and-run near the Pattullo Bridge, according to CTV. The victim was rushed to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, but later succumbed to the incurred injuries.
Bridgeview Drive from King George Boulevard and Highway 17, near the south end of the Pattullo Bridge, is closed to allow the police to investigate.
Few details are available at this time.
Surrey RCMP are also investigating the municipality’s fifth targeted shooting since early Tuesday morning.
At approximately midnight, a 28-year-old Langley male with serious gunshot wounds was dropped off in the 19200-block of 80th Avenue. Global BC reports that local residents assisted the man, who was apparently shot in a vehicle at another location. No gunshots were heard at the time of the victim’s drop-off.
The victim is known to police and was sent to hospital for treatment.
