Surrey RCMP say a 28-year-old woman was shot in the leg just after 4 a.m. this morning.

The incident happened outside a convenience store at 80th Ave. and King George Blvd.

Police say a dark-coloured SUV pulled into the convenience store parking lot. The driver and the woman got into some sort of verbal exchange.

The woman walked away from the store to a nearby trailer park, but she was followed by the SUV.

The exchange continued at the trailer park, and the woman was shot once in the lower leg. The SUV fled the scene on King George Blvd.

The victim was taken to hospital and is presently being treated for her injury. The motive for the shooting is unknown, but the incident does not appear to be random.

Surrey RCMP are presently seeking the public’s assistance, and requesting that anyone who may have witnessed the incident, either at the convenience store,  as the SUV was following the female, or at the trailer park, is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers.
