Man gets shot twice; takes train to mall food court
A Surrey man took the skytrain to a mall food court while suffering visible gunshot wounds yesterday, according to RCMP Staff Sgt. Hedderson.
Hedderson said Surrey police got a call at roughly 4:45 p.m. indicating there was a man in the food court of the Surrey City Centre mall who had apparently been shot.
“(Police) located the male, who was suffering from two gun shots,” Hedderson said. “The male was visibly bleeding from the wounds. (He) was initially uncooperative with police, but eventually agreed to be taken to hospital and was transported in serious condition.
“The male, a Surrey resident in his twenties, that has had a number of Police contacts in the past, has not been forthcoming with information as to where the shooting occurred. He has indicated that it occurred in another community, but has been evasive.
“Witnesses have indicated that male took the Skytrain to Surrey, getting off at the Surrey Central Station, and then came into the mall a short time before he was located by police.
“Surrey R.C.M.P. are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying where the male may have been shot, or may have seen him travelling on the Skytrain to Surrey., are asked to call the Surrey R.C.M.P. at 604-599-0502 or to call Crime Stoppers.”
