IN an effort to further the investigation, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) on Saturday released photos of the suspect vehicle in Tuesday’s shooting in Surrey.
On May 2 at 8 p.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a shooting in a parking lot in the 14800-block of 108 Avenue. Police located two victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Both victims were transported to hospital.
Jayden Prasad, 20, of Surrey succumbed to his injuries while the other victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been released from hospital.
Homicide investigators have identified and recovered a suspect vehicle seen leaving the parking lot after the shooting. The vehicle, found in the 20600-block of 36 Avenue in Langley, is described as a 2020 blue Hyundai Elantra 4-door sedan. The sedan had a distinct red tire on the rear driver’s side.
Anyone with information about this vehicle or who may have seen this vehicle leading up to the homicide is being asked to call IHIT.
“As we stated previously, this incident appears to be targeted and connected to the BC Gang Conflict. We believe that the suspects attempted to light the car on fire, but failed. I am urging anyone with information relating to this vehicle to contact IHIT,” said IHIT Media Relations Officer, Cpl. Sukhi Dhesi.
Anyone with information about this murder is asked to contact IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email at email@example.com.
