SURREY RCMP are currently on scene following a shooting in the 13300-block of King George Boulevard in Surrey that has left one man deceased.
On Monday at approximately 4:57 p.m., Surrey RCMP were called to a parking lot at the Days Inn Hotel at 13373 King George Boulevard after a report of shots fired was received.
An adult male victim was located in medical distress suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Despite all attempts to revive the man, he succumbed to his injuries.
A suspect vehicle described as an older model silver 4 door Infiniti sedan was seen fleeing from the area.
Police are investigating whether a burnt-out vehicle located a short time later in the area of 96 Avenue and 124 Street is connected to the homicide.
No suspect description is currently available, and police are looking for any witnesses or those with dash cam footage from the area to contact police.
The area surrounding the scene will be cordoned off for a significant amount of time, police said.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been called in and will be working in partnership with Surrey RCMP. Initial indications are that this was a targeted incident.
Police said they are currently in the evidence gathering phase and no further information would be provided at this time.
Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email at email@example.com.
