In a statement, Surrey RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Vanessa Munn said the shooting occurred at 1 p.m. in the 10700-block of City Parkway.

Police did not locate anyone with injuries and have no evidence to suggest anyone was struck.

However, the stolen Kia was spotted leaving the scene. It has a B.C. licence plate KE0 43M.

The alleged suspect vehicle was last seen northbound on City Parkway.

Munn said this was the fourth incident of shots fired in six days in Surrey.

“Indications are the three previous shootings (March 23-25) were targeted,” Munn said. “Investigators are examining possible links to the drug trade and Lower Mainland Gang Conflict.”

Munn said the people should be extra vigilant in reporting suspicious activity to police.

This includes any possible drug trafficking, as well as unknown vehicles idling for long periods in your neighbourhood.
