Police say that one man is dead after a fatal early morning shooting that took place in South Surrey.

On Friday morning, at approximately 12:32 am, members of the Surrey RCMP responded to a reported altercation in the 1600 blocks of 160 street.

Upon arrival, police officers say they found an adult suffering from gun wounds.

“Despite all attempts to revive the individual, the victim succumbed to their injuries,” Surrey RCMP said in an emailed statement.

It’s also believed that the parties involved are known to one another and that at this time, there’s no risk to public safety.
