A Surrey McDonald’s was the scene of a deadly shooting — for the second time — after a man was gunned down Saturday evening.

Mounties were called to the restaurant in the 11000-block Scott Road at about 6:05 p.m. after a fight turned deadly.

“There appears to have been an altercation between two males that turned violent and ended with one involving some gunplay,” said Integrated Homicide Investigation Team spokesman Cpl. Dale Carr.

The victim, a man believed to be in his mid 20s, collapsed to the floor and died while McDonald’s staff tried to assist him.

Carr said investigators are trying to determine if both men were in the restaurant beforehand or if one pursued the other inside.

“This is not a case of where someone comes in and just randomly shoots someone,” Carr said. “It appears the two knew each other.”

The man’s body was still inside the taped-off fast-food outlet late Saturday as investigators canvassed the area in search for the shooter.

The suspect is believed to have fled northbound, with witnesses reporting he was running along Pattullo Place. He is described as a man in his 20s with a scruffy beard and wearing dark clothing.

Carr said it is too early to determine if the shooting is related to drugs, gangs or organized crime.

It’s the second time the McDonald’s has been behind police tape.

In October 2007, 28-year-old career criminal Dylan Krishna Becker was killed in a targeted hit during a shootout in the restaurant’s parking lot.

Becker, a meth cook who subcontracted his skills to a biker gang, was found dead in a green Ford Explorer in the area of 94th Avenue and King George Highway shortly after the shooting.
