Police Catch Surrey Shooter After A Spate Of Shootings This Week

One Shooting Victim Drove Himself To ER In Bullet-Riddled Truck!

SURREY – Police finally caught up with the shooter who shot up the same house twice this week in Surrey which was the scene of numerous incidents of gun violence.

A 27-year-old man has been charged in connection with two shootings that targeted the same house in South Surrey over the weekend.

On Wednesday, RCMP announced one count of reckless discharge of a firearm has been approved against Cameron Barton, a Surrey resident who is known to law enforcement.

The incident comes on the heels of three shootings in Surrey over the weekend, two of which targeted the same home in South Surrey.

Police arrested five people and seized three vehicles in connection with those shootings but four were released and only Barton was charged.

And one of the victims of Surrey gun violence drove himself to the emergency room in a bullet-riddled pickup truck.

Surrey RCMP descended on Peace Arch Hospital after a man suffering from a gunshot wound arrived around 8:20 p.m. Monday night.

Witnesses say the man walked into the ER himself. The truck was later towed away.

Mounties also revealed the Barton shootings, which were directed at a home on 30th Avenue near 147 Street, are believed to be related to the “dial-a-dope” drug trade.

Barton was arrested along with four other people after officers stormed a house in White Rock Monday. The others have since been released from custody, but Barton is being held pending his next court appearance.

The RCMP said the investigation is ongoing and more charges are expected.
