A 30-year-old Surrey resident is in the hospital recovering after being shot at a home near 134A Street and 81 Avenue in Newton Sunday morning.

Police are searching for a brown van and a black pick-up truck that were seen leaving the scene. One of the vehicles is believed to have a broken window.

Police say the shooting was most likely targeted.

"This does not appear to be random in any way," said RCMP Insp. Tim Shields in an interview with CBC. "We don't believe the public is in danger as a result of this shooting.

Neighbours reported hearing shots fired following a loud argument at around 6:30 a.m. Sunday. The victim was found lying in his driveway.

Police say he is in stable condition and is well-known to them for violent offences.

Anybody with information about this incident is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
