Shots fired into Newton home

Police are investigating after bullets were fired into a Newton home this week.

Just after midnight on Monday, police were called to a home in the 9000-block 123A Street after reports of shots fired.

Shell casings were found on the road and bullet holes were identified in the home.

No one at home was hurt.

Nearby residents heard the screeching of tires as the shooters drove away, but no one has been able to describe the vehicle.

Mounties are canvassing the area for surveillance video to get a better idea of the vehicle or the gunmen.

Police have not yet ascertained whether the shooting was the result of a drug turf war that’s brought several shootings to the Newton area this year.

Surrey RCMP do believe it is targeted and say one of the people inside the home is known to them.

If anyone saw anything unusual in the area at that time, call police at 604-599-0502 or to remain anonymous, call 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
