IHIT identifies victims in South Surrey Park shooting, suspect in custody

Darpan News Desk IHIT, 05 Aug, 2022 07:05 PM
  • IHIT identifies victims in South Surrey Park shooting, suspect in custody

The three male victims of the targeted shooting at a Surrey Park last Saturday have been identified. 

The victims have been identified as 26-year-old Harbir Khosa, 20-year old Robeen Soreni, and 19-year-old Jordan Krishna. 

Khosa and Krishna are both known to police. Two of the three victims died. All three victims are from Surrey.

Homicide investigators confirm that this shooting was a single, targeted incident confined to the parking lot and around a 2010 black BMW X5. The black BMW X5 was associated to all three victims.

The investigation is still in its early stages, but indications are that this shooting has a nexus to gang and drug activity.

IHIT is working in partnership with resources from the Surrey Detachment, the Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS), CFSEU-BC, and the BC Coroners Service.

Homicide investigators have determined that there was a single suspect shooter who fled on foot away from the black BMW X5.

The suspect was described as a male wearing a dark hooded sweater, beige pants, and dark coloured baseball hat. One person was taken into custody, but no charges have yet been laid.

 “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,” said Sergeant David Lee of IHIT, the shooter then fled on foot in a western direction out of the park.”

 IHIT is seeking witnesses who were at the South Surrey Athletic Park around 2:30 p.m. and may have seen the 2010 black BMW X5 or someone running from the parking lot.

On Friday, search warrants were executed at residence near the crime scene at the South Surrey Athletic Park in partnership with the Surrey Detachment and IFIS.

IHIT confirms that this search is in connection to the shooting. 

Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448)
