What should have been an uneventful amble with the dog to the library to return some books this morning turned out to be quite shocking.
The entire library/RCMP detatchment building was closed off, including a block of the busy 152nd St.
It turns out there had been a police shooting at about 2:30am, which would probably explain the helicopters that have been patrolling the skies of normally sleepy White Rock/South Surrey all morning too.
The lady flagger positioned by the library was happily shuttling residents’ library books to the return silo. Details of the shooting are still sketchy, but no doubt will develop as the day goes on.
