SURREY, B.C. – Police say a shooting at a Surrey, B.C., sports field that killed two men and left another man in hospital with life-threatening injuries was a targeted crime likely connected to gangs and drugs.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says in a statement that the shooting at the South Surrey Athletic Park last Saturday happened in a parking lot.
Police say the dead include 26-year-old Harbir Khosa and 20-year-old Robeen Soreni.
A 19-year-old man remains in hospital with serious injuries.
The homicide investigation team says all three men are from Surrey.
Investigators say a single suspect shooter wearing a dark hooded sweater, beige pants and a dark-coloured baseball hat fled on foot and a black BMW X5 vehicle is associated with the three victims.
“We’ve established a timeline with the black BMW X5 arriving in the park around 2:27 p.m. and the shooting taking place right after,” Sgt. David Lee said Friday. “The shooter then fled on foot in a western direction out of the park.”
