SURREY – Surrey RCMP has identified the dead victim from an early Monday morning targeted shooting as an Indo-Canadian man from Surrey.

The male victim of the 2:10 a.m shooting early Monday is 28-year-old, Nicholas Khabra of Surrey, who was found by police suffering from gunshot wounds along with a woman companion who was also hurt in the shooting. 

On October 23, the Surrey RCMP received a report of shots fired from the 14300 block of Crescent Road.  When police arrived, they found Khabra suffering from gunshot wounds and was transported by the British Columbia Ambulance Service (BCAS) to hospital where he later died. 

Just after the initial report to police, a second report to police was made from a female victim who said that she too had been shot.  Police located this female victim a short distance away on Highway 99 at exit 10, and at which time she was transported by BCAS to hospital for treatment.

The female victim is expected to survive her injuries and her name will not be released. 

AD-Sunil-Grover-Show-Final-001In an effort to move the investigation forward, investigators are releasing Khabra's name to identify associates and pre-cursory movement prior to the homicide. 

“Mr. Khabra and the female victim are known to each other and were together at the time of the shooting,” says Cpl. Meghan Foster of IHIT. “The investigation to date leads police to believe that Mr. Khabra’s homicide was a targeted act.”

IHIT is working with the Surrey RCMP, and the Forensic Identification Section to gather and review evidence.  Shortly after the homicide occurred, a vehicle was recovered in Langley after it was deliberately set on fire. 

The investigation is in the early stages and police said they cannot confirm if this vehicle had any involvement in the homicide of Khabra.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.  Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
