The BC RCMP has notified the Independent Investigations Office of British Columbia (IIO BC) of an incident which has resulted in serious injuries to one man.

At approximately 2:11 a.m. the RCMP received report of a possible robbery in progress occurring near a business on the 15900-block of Fraser Highway in Surrey, where, the caller indicated, a man with a knife was attempting to rob people.

The responding officer pulled into a parking lot and as they were pulling up, the man allegedly produced a firearm and shot at the officer who was still seated in their police car.

The man then allegedly turned his gun on himself, suffering a serious injury. Emergency Health Services was contacted and the injured man was taken to the hospital.

The Surrey RCMP officer is not physically injured, however this was a disturbing and life-threatening incident, and they are receiving support.
