One man has died after being injured in a double shooting in Surrey early on Monday morning.
At 2:10 am, the Surrey RCMP received a report of shots fired from the 14300 block of Crescent Road.
When officers arrived, they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds. The man was taken to hospital, but ultimately succumbed to his injuries.
Not long after responding to the incident, police received a second report from a woman who told law enforcement she had been shot as well.
Police followed up and found the woman a short distance away on Highway 99 at exit 10, at which point she was then taken to hospital.
Now, police have identified the deceased man as 28-year-old Surrey resident Nicholas Kabra.
The woman is expected to recover from her injuries and police said they will not be releasing her name.
Shortly after the homicide occurred, a vehicle was recovered in Langley after it was deliberately set on fire.
However, police said it’s too early at this point to determine whether the vehicle fire was directly related to the shootings.
“Mr. Khabra and the female victim are known to each other and were together at the time of the shooting,” said Cpl. Meghan Foster of IHIT. “The investigation to date leads police to believe that Mr. Khabra’s homicide was a targeted act.”
IHIT is working with Surrey RCMP and the Forensic Identification Section to gather and review evidence.
