Surrey: The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is requesting public assistance to further its investigation into the shooting death of a Surrey man.
On November 26, at around 11:46 a.m., the Surrey RCMP received reports of shots fired in the 5400-block of 146 Street. Police arrived to find a man, later identified as 41-year-old Ranjeev Sangha of Surrey, with gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Those responsible for the shooting immediately left the area in a black four-door sedan.
Approximately one hour later at 12:49 p.m., the Richmond RCMP was alerted to a burning black sedan in the area of the 12000-block of Cambie Road. It was found approximately 100 meters off of Cambie Road on a pedestrian path. Detectives would like to speak with anyone that has information about this vehicle and are seeking dash cam video from drivers who were travelling between Surrey and Richmond along Highway 99 or Highway 91 between 11:46 a.m. and 12:49 p.m.
It is still early in the investigation, but investigators believe the murder of Ranjeev Sangha was a targeted incident and are working to determine motive.
IHIT is working closely with its partners from the Surrey RCMP, the Richmond RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Services and the B.C. Coroners Service to gather evidence.
“Retracing Ranjeev Sangha’s movements prior to his death will be one of the priorities for our detectives and we urge anyone who can help us achieve this end to contact us immediately,” says Corporal Frank Jang of IHIT.
Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551- IHIT (4448), or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
