The Surrey RCMP Major Crime Section is investigating after shots were fired at an officer Friday night.

Surrey RCMP said in a news release late Friday that a frontline officer was attempting to conduct a traffic stop with a black sedan at approximately 8:55 p.m. The vehicle was travelling westbound on 82 Avenue just past 128 Street when the officer engaged their emergency lights.

Police say the driver of the sedan then reached outside of their window and fired two gunshots at the officer.

The officer pursued the vehicle for a short distance before pulling over to prevent further danger to the public.

According to RCMP, the officer was not physically injured in the incident but was shaken up by what transpired.

Following the incident, additional police rushed to the area in response, but no arrests were made.

On Saturday, Surrey RCMP circulated a photo on Twitter that showed two vehicles. Police are looking to speak with the driver of the black SUV shown in the photo.

The Surrey Gang Enforcement Team and the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit are involved in the investigation.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone with dashcam footage to contact Surrey RCMP.
