SURREY, B.C. - An Alberta man has been identified as the victim of the latest fatal shooting in Surrey, B.C.

Homicide investigators say 27-year-old Richard Ofosuhene of Edmonton was found Tuesday, injured and unconscious, in the driver's seat of a running vehicle on a Surrey street.

Police say Ofosuhene was known to police and had ties to drug trafficking in Alberta but they believe his homicide is an isolated incident.

A statement from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says a motive has not yet been confirmed.

However, it says the slaying does not appear linked to Metro Vancouver's ongoing gang conflict.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses or dashcam video from anyone who was in the area of northwest Surrey between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 20.
