4 men seriously injured in shooting in White Rock, B.C.

Four men are in hospital in serious condition after multiple rounds were fired during an early-morning shooting in a residential neighbourhood of White Rock, B.C.

White Rock RCMP Const. Chantal Sears said the incident is believed to be targeted and police do not have any suspects at this time.

Neighbours reported hearing what sounded like a gunfight but Sears said it’s too early to confirm what happened.

“There were definitely multiple rounds fired but we don’t know if there was one shooter or multiple shooters at this time,” she said.

A number of people called 911 at around 12:25 a.m. PT Thursday to report the gunfire and a vehicle collision near the intersection of Roper Avenue and Lee Street.

Police found the four injured men at the scene, along with a black BMW SUV that had collided with a fence and hedge.

The SUV appeared to be riddled with bullet holes along the driver’s side of the vehicle.

A possible suspect vehicle was found burning in neighbouring Surrey, B.C., soon after the shooting, but Sears said a link has not been established.

The injuries to the four men are not believed to be life threatening, she said.
