The Surrey RCMP High Risk Target Team, the Lower Mainland Districtâ€™s Emergency Response Team (ERT) and Police Dog Services were all part of the arrest of a Langley man in South Surrey for a Cloverdale shooting.
Robert Miskenack, 27, of Langley, was arrested Aug. 20 when police executed a search warrant in the 15300 block of 27A Avenue.
The arrest is in relation to the shooting of a man in Cloverdale on the afternoon of July 21, explained Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr.
Miskenack is currently in custody facing eight charges including aggravated assault, assault, and six firearms related charges.
A woman had contacted the police to say a man accidently shot his friend in the leg. The Surrey RCMP attended the site at 187th Street and 60A Avenue to find a man with a single gunshot wound to his leg and refusing to provide much detail.
The suspect left the scene before police arrived, seen driving away at a high rate of sped on a motorcycle. At the time the RCMP sought the publicâ€™s help, releasing a description and explaining that the incident was not random.
Since then, the police have not ignored the scene of the shooting.
â€œOfficers with the Surrey RCMPâ€™s Neighbourhood Liaison Unit have also followed up with the property owners of the residence where the initial incident took place to ensure that some of the nuisance activity at that residence is properly being dealt with,â€ Carr added.
