Police are investigating an early morning shooting in a residence just west of Surrey City Centre.

In a release, Surrey RCMP say officers responded to reports of gunfire at 6:50 a.m. in the 11000 block of 132 Street. When officers arrived at the scene, they found shell casings in the area.

“The initial investigation has revealed that shots were fired at a residence in the area but no one was injured in the residence,” reads a statement. “Officers conducted neighbourhood canvassing and spoke with several witnesses to obtain further information.”

Preliminary findings indicate the shooting was targeted at a residence, which has occupants that are known to police.

Anyone who has information that could assist investigators is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers’ anonymous hotline at 1-800-222-8477.

Approximately one hour earlier, Surrey RCMP also responded to reports of a disturbance at a residence located less than two kilometres south. A woman in her 60s was killed after an altercation and the suspect was arrested at the scene.
