UPDATE: Woman dead, man in custody after Surrey shooting: RCMP

Surrey RCMP say officers were initially responding to a dropped 911 call

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is investigating following the shooting death of a woman in the Guildford area Tuesday (May 4).

Surrey RCMP say officers were initially en-route to a dropped 911 call just before 9 p.m. when police received further calls of shots fired in the 9700-block of 161A Street.

Once on scene, officers found a woman suffering from a gunshot wound, according to a release from Surrey RCMP Staff Sergeant Monsef. She was taken to a hospital, but later died.

The suspect, a man, was taken into custody “without incident near the scene,” Monsef added.

He said the investigation is still in its early stages, and the motive for the shooting is “unknown at this time.” Officers are still in the neighbourhood, speaking with witnesses for more information.

Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, or to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or solvecrime.ca.

This is the latest in a string of shootings since Saturday (May 1).
