Gunplay between cars in Surrey on the weekend

Police are investigating a brazen daylight shooting between two vehicles in Newton on the weekend.

At about 1:10 p.m. on Saturday, Surrey Mounties responded to a number of calls of shots fired near 139 Street and 88 Avenue.

Witnesses reported a white Nissan following a black Mercedes speeding and cutting in and out of traffic. Police were told the drivers were shooting at each other.

No reports were received of any injuries, but at least one other vehicle was struck by a bullet. The vehicles were reported last seen heading east on Fraser Highway near 155 Street.

Police say it's too early to say whether the incident is gang related. Evidence of gunfire was found at the scene.

Police tracked down the Nissan, but it turned out to be stolen.

"Any time you see that happen on streets where people walk, play, work (is of great concern)," Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said. "These incidents are being treated as a high priority."

Mounties are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incidents to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
