Surrey RCMP have made an arrest and are investigating an alleged road rage incident Thursday morning, which they said may have involved gun shots.
At 10:25 am, Surrey RCMP received a call from a woman who claimed that her vehicle had been shot at by someone in another vehicle “which was being driven erratically,” in the 19200 block of 72nd Avenue.
The suspect vehicle drove off and the woman pulled over to call police. She was not injured in the incident.
Coincidentally, police said, the same suspect vehicle was involved in a relatively minor accident nearby the intersection of 200th Street and 72nd Avenue in Langley shortly afterwards.
Officers discovered this was the same vehicle reported from the road rage incident and arrested the occupants as a result.
Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit is leading this investigation and impairment is believed to be a factor in the crash.
Both vehicles have been seized for forensic analysis and a neighbourhood canvass for more witnesses or video surveillance will be conducted. Surrey RCMP officers will also be investigating the crash.
“The investigation is just getting underway and as such no formal charges have been laid as of yet,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “If you see a motor vehicle offence, pull over when it’s safe. Contact your local police with as much information as possible including vehicle description and direction of travel.”
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. Alternately, anyone who may have information and wishes to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or leave a tip online at: solvecrime.ca.
