Surrey Mounties appeal to public after 911 call about woman firing gun on street

SURREY, B.C. — Surrey RCMP are asking for the public's help after receiving a single 911 call reporting a woman had fired a gun on the street.

Mounties received the call just after 6 a.m. Sunday reporting that a woman was outside (on the 9500-block of 168th Street) and had discharged a firearm before entering a home.

Officers responded to the scene and contained the home, and when the occupants came outside they all denied knowledge of the reported incident.

RCMP say officers searched the residence and failed to find a gun, or any evidence to support that shots had been fired.

Mounties say neighbours also said they had not heard or seen the reported incident.

Surrey RCMP are asking anyone who may have observed the incident or a woman with a gun in the area to contact police or CrimeStoppers.
