A torched SUV was found in North Delta, about six kilometres away from a double shooting in Surrey earlier in the night.
Delta Fire and Delta Police Department responded to a report of a torched vehicle on 64 Avenue at 109 Street in North Delta overnight.
Surrey RCMP is now confirmed the torched vehicle is connected to the shooting that injured two men.
This comes shortly after Surrey RCMP responded to a report of shots fired in the 12200-block of 80B Avenue around 6:45 p.m. on Friday (Jan. 28).
Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Dave Wise said two men were found with “serious injuries consistent with gunshot wounds,” and they were taken to hospital to be treated.
Wise added it’s “believed” the suspect, or suspects, fled the area in a vehicle, but “at this point police do not have a description of the vehicle or suspect(s) to release to the public.”
On Saturday afternoon, Surrey RCMP confirmed the two incidents are connected, adding the shooting believed to be linked to the drug trade and the Lower Mainland gang conflict.
