Fatal Surrey shooting was targeted: police
By The Canadian Press
SURREY, B.C. - Homicide investigators say a deadly, late-night shooting in Surrey, B.C., was targeted, but is not gang-related.
Integrated Homicide Investigation Team Sgt. Adam MacIntosh says the victim, a man in his early 30s, was shot to death in his Cloverdale home just before midnight, Monday.
MacIntosh says witness reports have helped them identify a possible suspect — a man in his late 20s or early 30s, driving a stolen, blue Kia SUV.
Few other details of the shooting have been released, but MacIntosh confirms officers had previously been to the townhouse where the attack occurred.
He says others were in the home at the time of the shooting, but no one else was hurt and no information about the other occupants is being provided.
An area around the townhouse complex remains behind police tape and detectives continue canvassing the area, searching for surveillance tape or witnesses who may have seen or heard something that could identify the killer. (Global)
