Ran­jeev Sangha iden­ti­fied as homi­cide vic­tim of New­ton shoot­ing

Asian Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Sur­rey: Po­lice say a man is dead after a tar­geted shoot­ing that ap­pears to have no links to an on­go­ing gang dis­pute in Sur­rey.

Cpl. Frank Jang of the In­te­grated Homi­cide In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team says 41-year-old Ran­jeev Sangha was shot to death just be­fore noon on Mon­day in a “brazen” and “reck­less” shoot­ing.

Jang says Sangha wasn’t known to po­lice and a mo­tive for the shoot­ing is un­clear.

About an hour after the in­ci­dent, po­lice say a burn­ing black sedan was found in Rich­mond and they be­lieve it is con­nected to the at­tack. Jang says they’re ap­peal­ing to any­one in the com­mu­nity to help them find those re­spon­si­ble for Sangha’s death.

He says po­lice are also try­ing to de­ter­mine why Sangha was tar­geted.

“And we’re ty­ing to find out why ex­actly any­one would want to harm him, why any­one would want to shoot him and why any­one would want him dead,” he added.
