SURREY, B.C. — RCMP in Surrey, B.C., are investigating what they say is another targeted shooting, although no one has been injured in the latest attack.

Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson says in a news release that the shooting occurred at about 9 p.m. Thursday night in a residential neighbourhood of central Surrey.

He says witnesses reported seeing someone in a white pickup truck firing numerous shots at a white Mercedes sedan.

The pickup fled, but officers were able to find the Mercedes and confirm it had several bullet holes, although the person inside was unhurt.

There have been a number of shootings in Surrey and across the Lower Mainland since the start of 2017.

The latest include the death of 22-year-old Karanpartap Waraich in Surrey on Jan. 23, when his vehicle was hit by a volley of shots in a targeted attack, and two men injured in a targeted shooting in Abbotsford the next day.
