A man who walked into Langley Memorial Hospital with gunshot wounds on Friday evening had been shot in Surrey earlier that day, Langley RCMP confirm.

Surrey RCMP say they are investigating the shooting, which was first reported around 7 p.m. in the area of Mud Bay Park off Colebrook Road.

At the same time, officers reportedly found a man suffering from a gunshot wound at a different location in the 17300-block of 56 Avenue.

Access to the hospital was restricted temporarily following the man’s arrival, but walk-ins resumed before 9 p.m., according to police.

RCMP say the 22-year old South Asian man had non-life-threatening injuries.

Langley RCMP couldn’t immediately confirm whether the incident was tied to a report of shots fired in the Whalley area of Surrey at around 4 p.m., where a white-coloured car was reportedly seen speeding away from the scene.

Surrey RCMP said in that case, officers found evidence that shots had been fired but didn’t provide any details regarding possible injuries.

Surrey RCMP has taken control of the Mud Bay Park investigation, and is asking anyone with information to contact them or Crime Stoppers.

Police also want to talk to anyone who saw a vehicle fleeing the area, or has dashcam footage from Colebrook Road and King George Boulevard between 6:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

Mud Bay Park remains closed along with a section of Colebrook Road, police added Saturday, and will remain closed “for an unknown period of time” as the investigation continues.
