    Man known to police recovering from latest targeted shooting in Surrey, B.C.

    SURREY, B.C. - Surrey RCMP say a shooting Tuesday night in that Metro Vancouver suburb was targeted and appears to be gang-related.

    The attack occurred just after 10 p.m. in front of a home in the 8800 block of 131 Street.

    Insp. Dan Splinter says the victim was found on the lawn in front of the home and the 28-year-old man is known to police.

    Splinter says the man is being treated in hospital for a gunshot wound.

    Witnesses called police after hearing gunfire, but Splinter says it is too early to comment on possible suspects, and no arrests have been made.

    A 31-year-old man was killed in a shooting in North Surrey on Sunday night and two men died and two others were severely wounded in three targeted shootings around Metro Vancouver since the start of the year.
