Satwant Bains Killed In Targeted Shooting In Fleetwood

Surrey man Satwant Singh Bains was killed in targeted shooting in his driveway in Fleetwood Last week.

Bains said goodbye to his wife and kids Friday before getting into his car and being fatally shot in his driveway. He is believed to have said good-bye to his wife and children before heading off to work at 5 a.m. as usual. But when he walked out his door and got into his vehicle he was shot and killed.

Bains’ bullet-riddled body was found slumped inside his car when police arrived.

According to investigators Bains has no criminal record and was not known to police.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team on Monday released the name of the region’s latest murder victim.

Sgt. Jennifer Pound said Bains was not known to police and had no criminal record.

“Evidence to date suggests that this killing was not random and Mr. Bains, described as a family man, was a victim of a targeted shooting,” she said.

IHIT investigators are still working on a motive for the shooting, Pound said.

“Extensive neighbourhood canvassing was completed throughout the weekend,” she said. “Witnesses described a white four-door sedan vehicle speed off westbound on 86 Avenue towards 152 Street.”

Anyone with information is asked to the IHIT Tipline at 1-877-551-4448.
