SURREY – Gangland violence claimed two Indo-Canadian men in Surrey last week.

One of the latest victims of gun violence in Metro Vancouver has been identified as a 27-year-old with known gang associations.

Vancouver resident Randeep Kang, who has been identified by police as a 27-year-old with known gang associations and another man were both shot last Friday night on a residential street in Surrey.

Kang was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other victim was hospitalized with undisclosed injuries.

Kang's killing comes on the heels of another Indo-Canadian man gunned down last Monday.

Twenty-eight-year-old Nicholas Khabra of Surrey was found by police suffering from gunshot wounds along with a woman companion who was also hurt in the shooting.

Khabra and his companion were shot on October 23. 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. 

Indo-Gangster-DeadCpl. Frank Jang of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team issued a statement on Monday on Kang's killing, describing the latest shooting as “brazen.”

 “[It demonstrated] a blatant disregard for public safety,” Jang said.

Brand-D-Media-new-001Police said Kang was known to police and associated to gang activity.  Investigators believe Kang’s murder was targeted and linked to other gang violence in the Lower Mainland.  

The deceased was known to police, and IHIT believes his murder was targeted and likely linked to the ongoing problem of gun violence in the region.

Investigators also believe there are people who have information on what happened, and Jang called on them to help solve the case.

"I urge these individuals to come forward and speak with IHIT so that we can hold those responsible to account," Jang said.

DEMENTIA Podium TalkJust 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.

Shortly after the Nicholas Khabra homicide occurred, a vehicle was recovered in Langley after it was deliberately set on fire. The investigation in the Khabra killing is in the early stages and police said they cannot confirm if this vehicle had any involvement in the homicide of Khabra.

“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.”

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.
