The body was found on Sunday afternoon at 2 pm lying in the Surrey park with a gunshot wound. As IHIT takes over the investigation, the scene will be cordoned off for most of the day to collect and process evidence.

The victim hasn’t officially been identified yet, although a tentative identification was made and the next of kin are being notified.

Witnesses say they heard gunfire in the area as early as late Saturday evening. Anyone with information should contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
