Surrey RCMP Look For Leads In Shooting That Left Man In Serious Condition

SURREY, B.C. - Mounties in Surrey, B.C., are investigating a shooting involving a man who was found lying in a driveway with gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen.

Cpl. Bert Paquet says the 31-year-old man is in serious but stable condition that required emergency surgery.

He says the home where the man was found as well as several outbuildings and vehicles were inspected overnight after the shooting around 9:30 Sunday night.

Paquet says investigators are searching for a suspect following possible leads but have not identified any persons of interest.

He says the victim is well-known to police, and investigators believe the incident was targeted.

Police hope to interview the man once he is aware enough to give his account of what happened.
