When officers arrived on the scene, they managed to find evidence consistent with shots being fired, as well as a motor vehicle collision.

At this point, it’s believed that a light-coloured Jeep Wrangler drove into a grey Toyota Sienna.

The driver of the Jeep then fired shots into the Sienna and both vehicles left the area.

The Sienna then rushed to the Surrey Memorial Hospital where the teen, who was a passenger, was treated for serious, but non-life threatening injuries from the shooting.

Officers from the Metro Vancouver Transit Police were able to locate the suspect vehicle and the driver has since been taken into custody.

Both vehicles have been seized as part of the investigation.

The Surrey RCMP believe that the incident was targeted and isolated. Early stages of the investigation are indicating that the incident was neither gang or drug-related.

Anyone who witnessed the occurrence or has dash-cam video is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
