The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) seeks information on suspect vehicle.

Background:

In an effort to further the investigation, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is releasing photos of the suspect vehicle in Tuesday’s shooting in Surrey.

On May 2, 2023 at 8 p.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a shooting in a parking lot in the 14800-block of 108 Avenue. Upon attendance, police located two victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Both victims were transported to hospital. Jayden Prasad, 20, of Surrey succumbed to his injuries while the other victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been released from hospital.

Homicide investigators have identified and recovered a suspect vehicle seen leaving the parking lot after the shooting. The vehicle, found in the 20600-block of 36th Avenue in Langley, is described as a 2020 blue Hyundai Elantra 4-door sedan. The sedan had a distinct red tire on the rear driver’s side. Anyone with information about this vehicle or who may have seen this vehicle leading up to the homicide is being asked to call IHIT.

Images of the vehicle have been provided for identification.

As we stated previously, this incident appears to be targeted and connected to the BC Gang conflict. We believe that the suspects attempted to light the car on fire, but failed. I am urging anyone with information relating to this vehicle to contact IHIT, says IHIT Media Relations Officer, Corporal Sukhi Dhesi.

We are asking anyone with information about this murder to contact IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
