  • Shots fired at Scottsdale Centre in North Delta, heavy police presence in the area

According to a release issued by Delta Police, they received reports of shots fired at 4:55 pm May 1 near a gas station at 72nd Ave and 120th Street.

Police responded immediately confirming the incident as a serious matter and located a male who had been shot.

“Right now the initial evidence is indicating that this was a targeted shooting,” says Inspector Guy Leeson, head of Investigative Services at Delta Police.

Witnesses report hearing 5-6 shots fired between 2 vehicles  at the intersection of 72nd Ave and Scott Rd. Both Surrey RCMP and Delta police descened to the scene of the incident. 

The parking lot at Scottsdale Centre in North Delta had been cordoned off with police tape. 

Police had blocked entrances to Scottsdale Centre.

The area of 72nd Ave had also been blocked at Scott Rd to traffic by police.

“Officers have been interviewing witnesses in the area, and we are also in possession of video that appears to have been filmed immediately after the incident,” says Insp. Leeson. “However, anyone who hasn’t yet spoken to police, and was a witness, has dashcam or CCTV video, is asked to please call 604-946-4411.”

In the video posted to social media shows a man who appears to be wielding a gun getting into the back seat of a car.

Delta Police are not in a position to confirm the identity of the victim or comment on his medical condition.

“This shooting took place in a very public manner, and we are very much aware of the possible risk to innocent bystanders,” says Insp. Leeson. “Fortunately it doesn’t appear there was anyone else injured during this incident, but we ask those who might have any information to contact police.”

Shoppers inside the Walmart had been told that they cannot leave. About 100 plus vehicles were unaccessible.
