The shooting came just hours after Surrey RCMP held a community engagement meeting to address residents' concerns about safety. The meeting had been planned after another shooting, which sent two men to hospital with serious injuries on Tuesday.
More than 150 people showed up at the meeting, many with questions about safety in the neighbourhood.
The shooting Tuesday happened in the Fraser Heights neighbourhood of the city, about 25 kilometres away from Thursday's crime scene.
