On October 27 just before 9 p.m., the Surrey RCMP received a report of gunfire in the 11300-block of Alpen Place.  Emergency first responders found two male victims who had gunshot injuries.  One of the victims was pronounced deceased at the scene and the second victim was taken to hospital.

Just after the shooting occurred, the Surrey RCMP received a call of a dark-coloured SUV on fire on Wellington Drive, a short distance away from the shooting scene.  Investigators believe this vehicle may be related to the homicide and anyone with information about this vehicle is asked to contact the police.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has taken conduct of the investigation and is working closely with its partners from the Surrey RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Section and the B.C. Coroner’s Service to gather evidence.

In order to further the ongoing homicide investigation, investigators are now confirming 27-year-old Randeep Kang of Vancouver was the victim of homicide.  Mr. Kang was known to police and associated to gang activity. Investigators believe Mr. Kang’s murder was targeted and linked to other gang violence in the Lower Mainland.
