The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is investigating a Monday evening shooting in Surrey that has left one person dead.

The shooting comes less than 24 hours after a 19-year-old man was fatally shot inside a vehicle in Surrey on Sunday night.

In a release, Surrey RCMP says officers responded to the Monday night incident in the 11000 block of 148A Street at approximately 7:32 pm.

When officers arrived on the scene, a victim was located suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim has since succumbed to their injuries.

Police say traffic will be affected for an unknown amount of time as 110 Avenue is shut down for all traffic between 148 Street and 148A Street and all north and southbound traffic on 148A Street is shut down to the north of 110 Avenue.

IHIT will be working in partnership with the Surrey RCMP.

“Police are currently in the evidence-gathering phase, no further information will be provided at this time,” noted Surrey RCMP.
