A shooting in Surrey near Strawberry Hill Elementary School in the 7500 block of 123A Street has left a man with non-life threatening injuries.

Surrey RCMP believe the shooting was targeted. It happened yesterday, September 15 at around 6 p.m.

The 22-year-old man who was shot is known to police and was transported to hospital.

“The investigation is in its infancy and it’s too early to make any connections to other Lower Mainland shootings,” said Corporal Scotty Schumann in a statement.

“We can say that the incident appears to be targeted given just two vehicles were involved.  Our Major Crime Unit, Patrol officers, and Integrated Forensic Identification Services are all on scene conducting a thorough examination of the area. The neighborhood is also being canvassed for witnesses and any other evidence. We’re hoping that anyone with information about these two groups will come forward and help us advance the investigation.”

The elementary school was cordoned off to search for evidence.

If you have more information about this shooting, contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or solvecrime.ca.
