Police respond to shots fired call
At approximately 9:45 pm, May 4, Delta Police responded to a call about shots being fired in the 8800 block of Delvista Drive.
When police arrived they located two victims who had been shot. They received non-life threatening injuries and were taken to hospital.
A number of police resources immediately attended the area, including the Lower Mainland District Police Dog Services. However the male suspect fled the scene prior to police arrival and was not located. No description of the suspect is available at this time.
“It’s early in the investigation, but we believe this is a targeted incident, related to a previous dispute,” said Cris Leykauf, public affairs coordinator for Delta Police. “It is not believed to be associated to gang activity.”
She notes that another police incident, the occurred the same evening in the 95th Ave block of 120th Street, is not related to the matter on Delvista Drive, and is under the jurisdiction of Surrey RCMP.
“We understand events of this nature are very concerning to the community. Our officers want to thank residents in that neighbourhood for their cooperation with police last night. We continue to work hard today to advance this investigation,” says Leykauf.
