Surrey RCMP are investigating reports of shots fired in the Newton area on Sunday night, the third shooting in Surrey in just four days.

According to a release, the latest incident took place in the 12200 Block of 78th Ave, at the intersection with 122 St, just before 9:05 pm.

Police say they found evidence of shots being fired at the scene, but no victims were found, nor any evidence any vehicle or homes had been hit.

Early investigations indicate a black SUV and a silver Acura car were seen fleeing the area, and that this was a targeted incident involving parties known to each other, say police.
