RCMP said when they arrived they found an injured 33-year-old man.

He was taken to the hospital but RCMP said due to the serious nature of his injuries, he is not expected to survive.

Also on Friday morning, a man was shot and killed by police after they responded to an attempted armed robbery and a carjacking.

Last week Surrey RCMP say they received reports of shots fired in the 10700-block of City Parkway in Whalley around 1 p.m. Monday.

Evidence of a shooting, including bullet casings, were found in the street but no victims or suspects were located. RCMP said they found no evidence that anyone was hit by a bullet.

That shooting was the fourth reported shooting in the previous six days. The other three are believed to have been targeted attacks, killing one man and injuring two others.

RCMP are investigating possible ties between the series of shootings and the local drug trade, as well as the wider Lower Mainland gang conflict.
