Five targeted shootings in last two days

Surrey: Another shooting in Surrey making it the fifth targeted shooting over the two days.
Surrey RCMP said Wednesday that They are concerned about four targeted shootings in less than two days that left at least two people injured.
RCMP spokesman Sgt. Dale Carr said he is deeply concerned about the shootings, which police believe are targeted and linked.
“Some sort of heated battle is going on,” but police don’t know the reason for the shooting spree, said RCMP spokesman Sgt. Dale Carr.
The police received a call shortly before mid-night, last night about a shooting in the 19300-block of 80th Avenue, says Surrey RCMP.
When officers arrived, they found a 28-year-old Langley man, suffering from a serious gunshot wound to his lower body, being attended to by the Ambulance Service Unit.
The victim was transported by ambulance to hospital and is in stable condition. He is known to police.
The victim told the RCMP that he was shot in a vehicle in another unknown location, and then dropped on the road in the location where he is found.
It began at 4 a.m. on Tuesday, when police were called to Surrey Memorial Hospital where a 20-year-old man was being treated for gunshot wounds. Then later that evening police seized an abandoned vehicle used in the shooting and an hour later another man, a 21 year old, was shot near 127th Street and 78th Avenue.
According to the police at 11 p.m. that night, shots were fired near 128th Street and 76th Avenue but there were no apparent victims. Then on Wednesday at 2 p.m., more shots were fired at 80th Avenue, and again no victims were identified.
The RCMP is urging anyone with information about any of the shootings to call RCMP at 604-599-0502.
