Shots fired into business

Shots were fired into a Surrey business overnight.

Staff Sgt. Joe Johal of the Surrey RCMP says police were still on this scene early this morning of a business on the 18800 block of Fraser Highway.

Police received reports of shots fired about 2:15 a.m. near 188th Street and Fraser Highway.

They have confirmed several shots were fired into the front window of the business, which was not named.

Shell casings were found on the scene, and officers conducted neighbourhood canvassing and spoke with several witnesses. 

Initial indications are the incident is a random act, and no one was injured.

It is possibly the 38th shooting in the last four months a turf war continues in the low-level drug trade in the Lower Mainland community.

Police ask that anyone with information on the incident contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
