THE homicide victim of the February 4 shooting shortly before 7:30 a.m. in Surrey in which a man and woman inside a residence in the 10800-block of 139A Street were found suffering from gunshot wounds has been identified as 23-year-old Shana Harris-Morrris by members of her family.
The man, who is in his early 40s, received non-life-threatening injuries while the woman succumbed to her injuries.
Police said early indications are that this shooting was not a random act.
Shana’s family has set up a GoFundMe to pay for her “funeral service and tombstone.” Her uncle, Ryan Morris, who set up the GoFundMe, that his niece “Shana (Shay Shay)” was “always funny, very smart and a beautiful soul.”
An update on Saturday stated: “Shana’s body will be released on Tuesday of this week. The service will likely be taking place I’m imagining the end of the week. With covid restrictions in place, we are unsure as to how many people will be able to attend. With that being said, for those that wish to visit Shana’s final resting place, I will be posting the service information which will be in Surrey and also the location so you can visit her if you are in the area. Should there be any should there be any funds left over, we plan on having a park bench dedicated to her here in Chilliwack so her mother (Kerry), her father (Shane), her brother (Steven) and sisters (Lindsey, Shelby, Melanie, Dallas and Paige), Grampa John, Shane’s Family, and myself will have a place locally in Chilliwack that we can visit regularly.”
Shana’s mother told Global BC that her daughter grew up in Surrey and spent a number of years in the care of the Ministry of Children and Family Development. She said that Shana had to deal with mental health issues throughout her life, along with addictions beginning in her late teens.
She told Global BC that in recent years, she had become fearful and felt something bad was going to happen.
