RCMP are investigating the latest shooting in the Surrey, possibly the latest incident in the drug turf war among a young group of individuals of South Asian and Somali descent.
Witnesses reported hearing several shots being fired near 65th Avenue and 121st Street at approximately 11:15 p.m. on Friday. Shortly after, several vehicles described as a small new grey import car and a dark-coloured sedan were seen driving away from the scene.
The bullets did not strike any vehicles or homes, but shell casings were found in the area.
This is the 21st shooting incident in Surrey and North Delta since March 10.
