One shot dead in Surrey, two suspects arrested (updated)

AT around 12:30 a.m. on Friday, Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a shooting in the 1600-block of 160th 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 succumbed to his injuries.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) was called in 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 IHIT Constable Harrison Mohr. “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.”
