Shots fired from car to car

Police in Surrey are investigating an incident in which shots were fired between two cars.

The incident is said to have occurred in the 15700 block of Fraser Highway, shortly before 3:30 a.m.

The caller told RCMP a black Dodge Durango with five or six South Asian males drove up next to the victim vehicle, a black Nissan Maxima. 

Two people inside the Durango shot at the Maxima before driving away eastbound. The Maxima gave chase to try and obtain a licence plate number, and the Durango began firing at them again. 

The Maxima broke off the chase, and the Durango was last seen heading westbound on Fraser Highway. The occupants of the Maxima called police and were located unharmed.

“We’re fortunate that no one was hurt – and we don’t recommend that anyone pursue armed suspects for obvious safety reasons,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann.

“Our investigators are now searching the route for surveillance camera footage and will be completing a forensic examination of the victim’s vehicle. Investigators are still combing Fraser Highway for evidence, and motorists may experience some delays in the area.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or CrimeStoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
