IHIT asking public assistance in shooting death of Austin Grewal on April 26


Surrey: The Integrated Homicide Investigat­ion Team (IHIT) is requesting public assistance to further its ongoing investigat­ion into the shooting death of 18-year-old Austin Grewal. On April 26, just after 5 p.m., 18-year-old Mankaran (Austin) Grewal was shot and killed in the area of 176 Street and Abbey Drive in Surrey. A red Chrysler 300 sedan was identified as being associated to the shooting. Thanks to the public’s assistance, police recovered a red Chrysler 300 in the area of 201 Street and 123A Avenue in Maple Ridge, B.C. later that evening. Investigat­ors now believe this is the suspect vehicle.

After an extensive canvass of the neighbourh­ood where the Chrysler 300 was found, IHIT obtained video surveillan­ce footage that shows two males believed to be associated to the vehicle. Investigat­ors are asking anyone with informatio­n about the individual­s: Suspect 1: Taller of the two, non-caucasian male, skinny build, dark facial hair goatee or beard wearing a light coloured hoodie.

Suspect 2: Shorter of the two, unknown ethnicity, skinny build, no facial hair wearing a black hoodie with a cap underneath carrying a bag on his shoulder.

“IHIT detectives continue to actively pursue those responsibl­e for Austin Grewal’s murder,” says Corporal Frank Jang of IHIT.
