Langley RCMP don’t have any new leads about an exchange of gunfire that took place during the busy rush hour near Willowbrook Shopping Centre on Thursday, March 31.
Langley RCMP received multiple 911 calls about people in vehicles shooting at each other in the 19600 block of the Langley Bypass just before 5 p.m.
An SUV swerved into a strip mall parking lot and then onto Landmark Way, where a blue Ford Escape was dumped, before its two occupants fled on foot.
The RCMP said there is no sign that anyone was injured and there have been no reports of anyone showing up at hospital that day with gunshot wounds. The vehicle that got away is described as a dark-coloured sedan, which fled west into Surrey.
The Ford Escape that was dumped in the parking lot was a rental vehicle, police confirmed.
Given how busy the area was at the time, the situation was very dangerous and could have had a much worse outcome, said police.
While gang activity and gunplay isn’t unheard of in Langley, this area hasn’t seen anywhere near the level of violence that Surrey has.
During the first three months of 2016, Surrey recorded 32 incidents of gunfire.
