BY Connect News, Aug 9, 2022 11:26 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Surrey RCMP is advising the public of a shooting in the Guildford area that left one person deceased and requesting anyone with information to contact police.

On August 9, 2022, at approximately 2:20 p.m., Surrey RCMP received the report of shots fired at a taxi in a parking lot in the 14800 block of 108 Avenue. Upon arrival, it was determined that both occupants of the vehicle had been shot. The passenger, a 20-year-old male is deceased and the driver of the taxi was transported to hospital with serious injuries.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been called and will be working in partnership with Surrey RCMP. The area surrounding the scene will be cordoned off for an undetermined amount of time while police work to gather evidence.

"Initial indications are that this was a targeted incident with the 20-year-old deceased man being known to police," says, Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn. "This daytime shooting in a strip mall parking lot demonstrated a complete disregard for the safety of others and resulted in serious injuries to a taxi driver."
