On Friday, around 12:30 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a
shooting in the 1600 block of 160 Street in South Surrey. A 46-year-old
man was found suffering from gunshot wounds inside a house at that
location. He was transported to hospital, but sadly died from his
injuries. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) was called
in earlier this morning and is now leading this investigation, working
alongside Surrey RCMP and the Integrated Forensic Identification
Services.

Surrey RCMP have arrested two male suspects in relation to this
homicide. They remain in custody, but no charges have been laid at this
time. Both males were known to the victim, and police do not believe
that there are any outstanding suspects.

“This appears to be a tragic and isolated incident,” said Constable
Harrison Mohr with IHIT. “Our thoughts are with the victim’s family,
and our team of investigators are working diligently to try to find the
answers his family needs, as well as the answers we need for a
successful investigation.”
