File # 2021-559

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is investigating after a 20-year-old woman succumbed to her injuries in hospital after being shot at a residence in the Guildford neighbourhood of Surrey, B.C.

Surrey: On May 4, 2021 just before 9 p.m., the Surrey RCMP responded to reports of a shooting in the 9700-block of 161A Street. Upon arrival, officers found a 20-year-old woman with gunshot wounds. She was taken to hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries. A man in his twenties was arrested at the scene in connection with the shooting and is in police custody.

We understand the public may be feeling anxious given the recent spate of shootings and homicides in communities across the Lower Mainland, says Sergeant Frank Jang of IHIT. With respect to this most recent fatal shooting, it does not appear to be gang-motivated.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.

Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
