On Tuesday night, when police arrived at the scene of the shooting outside the townhouse complex in Surrey, they found evidence of a car crash between a Jeep and a Toyota Sienna as well as evidence of shots fired. Investigators believe shots were fired from one vehicle to another after they crashed into each other. Reports say, both drivers fled the scene after the collision.
Reports say, the victim was the passenger of the Toyota Sienna and that he was taken to hospital by the driver of the vehicle. The 17-year-old victim remains in hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries.
Soon after the incident, police located the driver of the Jeep in Metro Vancouver and took the suspect into custody.
According to Surrey RCMP, the victim was likely targeted by the alleged shooter but they don’t see the late-night gunfire as being a gang-related incident.
