Dangerous driving, assault may be linked to gang conflict: Surrey RCMP

April 29, 2019 - 1:44 PM

SURREY, B.C. - Mounties say a weekend fight involving many people and vehicles being driven dangerously may be linked to gang conflict in the Lower Mainland.

RCMP say multiple people called 911 to report dangerous driving and people fighting in the street in the Newton area of Surrey on Saturday night.

Police say officers arrived and three men were taken to hospital, two with minor injuries and one with serious injuries.

RCMP say two vehicles were seized at the scene — a Nissan Maxima and a Ford Taurus.

Mounties believe the people involved knew each other and the fight may be linked to an ongoing gang conflict that has rattled the region.

Investigators are looking for other individuals and vehicles involved, including a red Dodge Caravan, a Black Volkswagen Jetta and a burgundy Honda Accord.

Police add that although some initial reports indicated gunfire, officers can confirm that no shots were fired.

Investigators also say that there are videos circulating on social media and they are asking anyone with footage or information about this event to contact police.
