Surrey man killed in brazen shooting tied to gang conflict

Oct 12 2018, 5:19 pm

The man who died Thursday after being gunned down in a residential Surrey neighbourhood was targeted because of his association to gangs, say homicide investigators.

Sumeet Randhawa, a 30-year-old Surrey resident, was known to police.

Surrey RCMP responded to the shooting around 2 pm in the 6700-block of 130th Street, and closed down a four-block stretch of the road while it conducted its initial probe.

Responding officers attempted to save Randhawa before ambulance and fire teams arrived, but he died of his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.  

The case is now in the hands of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.

Detective Lara Jansen said in a news release its investigators believe Randhawa was specifically targeted and his murder is related to the ongoing gang conflict in BC’s Lower Mainland.
