Woman killed on February 4 in Surrey identified as Shana Harris-Morris

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.



  1. I am deeply saddened by the lost of wonderful little Shana. We were neighbours and friends of hers serveal years ago. We had many wonderful talks, stories, laughs. As well as I told her I’m here for her 24/7 if she ever had an issue, and she did take me up on that a few times due to relationship issues and whatnot. Shana was a beautiful person inside and out. I would love to be able to pay my respects, as well as we still have Leonard the cat that meant so very much to her, and I would be more than happy to allow any family to come and spemd some time with him. She really loves him alot….Prior to her moving away she asked we adopt her cat Leonard, which we were more than happy to do. She visited him a few times and I would run into her every once in awhile after she moved out of our neighbourhood. This is a horrible thing to happen to a wonderful person. If anyone is able to provide me with device details or final resting place I would truly appreciate it and my love and hugs honour to everyone missing her, so much.
