Police are investigating yet another shooting in Surrey, making this the 30th shooting incident in the municipal jurisdiction since January 1.
According to RCMP, shots were fired in broad daylight at 5:45 p.m. on Sunday from a suspect SUV into a victim car at the intersection of 88th Avenue and 132 Street, on the border of the Newton and Whalley areas.
