Mounties are investigating an attempted robbery in Surrey’s Guildford neighborhood that left one man seriously injured Sunday evening.

Officers found the victim after responding to a report of gunfire at a jewelry store near 101 Avenue and 152 Street, close to Guildford Town Centre, at around 6:20 pm

“One person was shot by the suspects, who had fled the area prior to police arrival,” Surrey RCMP said in a news release Monday.

The victim was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening, authorities said.

There were no more RCMP in the area Monday morning, but broken glass and what appeared to be blood stains could be seen at a strip mall.

Surrey RCMP said officers spent Sunday evening canvassing the neighborhood and speaking to witnesses, but asked anyone else with information that could help in their investigation to come forward.

Authorities are also looking for dash cam video captured near 101 Avenue and 152 Street between 6 pm and 6:30 pm Sunday.
