When police arrived they found a woman suffering from a minor gunshot wound.

According to Staff Sgt. Dale Carr, the RCMP believe that the intended victims fled the scene in a black Hyundai missing a front bumper while the suspects were seen leaving the area in a red pick-up truck.

The red truck was later found on fire in the 9000 block of 150 Street. Witnesses reported that two males were seen fleeing the area.

Surrey RCMP are asking that anyone who who may have witnessed this event or witnessed the males fleeing from the area call 604-599-0502 or to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
