UPDATE: Coquitlam man expected to survive after ‘brazen’ Surrey shooting

RCMP are investigating after a man was shot in Guildford

GUILDFORD — A man is in serious but stable condition after a shooting in Guildford Tuesday night.

The victim had multiple gun shot wounds and was transported to a regional trauma centre, according to Surrey RCMP.

Corporal Scotty Schumann said the man, 29, was from Coquitlam and “known to police.”

He’s expected to survive.

Though police arrested a suspect last night in relation to the shooing, Schumann said, but “he’s been eliminated as a suspect so currently, we have no persons in custody.”

Police are still trying to determine who the shooter was.

Bystanders said they believe that the shots came from a motorcyclist.

“We believe it was targeted,” Schumann added. “Certainly, the actions of the shooter lead one to believe that this was targeted. Every shooting in public I would categorize as brazen, whether it’s daytime or night time. It’s still a risk to the public.”

The shooting took place shortly before 8:30 p.m. at the strip mall at the northwest corner of 148 Street and 108 Avenue in Guildford and witnesses said they heard half a dozen shots prior to the RCMP’s arrival. A bullet hole marred the glass front of a sushi restaurant with a ‘grand opening’ sign still up.

RCMP forensics and the serious crime investigators were gathering evidence at the scene for several hours after the shooting.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
