Surrey RCMP are investigating a series of three shootings in the Clayton, Clayton Heights, and Fleetwood neighbourhoods over the past 24 hours.

The first incident took place around noon on Tuesday, when police were called to the 7000 block of 180th Street in Clayton for a report of shots fired.

According to a release, police found a vehicle and garage door had been hit by bullets, but luckily the person inside the vehicle had not been injured.

Police believe the suspect was riding a motorcycle and fled the area before officers arrived. Surrey RCMP’s General Investigation Unit (GIU) is now investigating.

The second case of shots fired came at around 7:10 pm in the 19200 block of 72nd Avenue in Clayton Heights.

After finding evidence of shots fired, police believe someone inside one vehicle was shooting at another vehicle. No one was injured.

The third shooting took place at about 10:30 pm, when a vehicle was shot at, in the 15900 block of 89A Avenue in Fleetwood.

When police arrived at the scene, they found a man with from non-life threatening injuries. He was transported to hospital.

In all three cases, police are conducting neighbourhood canvassing and seeking to speak with witnesses. All three shootings are believed to have been targeted.

The three shootings come after a spate of similar cases in Surrey in July, which saw three shootings in four days, as well as a later shooting in broad daylight.
