VANCOUVER, B.C. — There was a shooting in Surrey this afternoon, according to authorities.
Two vehicles were seen in the area of 139 St. and 88 Ave., with the occupants possibly firing shots back and forth. A white Nissan and black Mercedes were speeding and cutting in and out of traffic, when witnesses report someone inside the Nissan shot at the Mercedes. It is unknown if there were shots fired from the Mercedes.
There were no reports of any injuries, but one other vehicle was struck by a bullet. The RCMP does not know whether the two cars involved were hit.
Twenty-five minutes after the initial calls were received, there were reports of similar cars speeding and cutting in and out of traffic on Fraser Highway at 155 St. Police say it’s not clear whether the vehicles are the same, but due to the timing and proximity the two incidents could be related.
Pamela Wolfe who lives in the area was sitting in her basement when she heard the shots. “We ducked,” she told Global News. “You don’t know where it is coming from.” She said there were lots of people walking in the area when it happened.
