A preliminary inquiry has been scheduled for a Surrey senior charged in connection with what police described as a targeted shooting near the Pacific Highway border.
According to online court records, four days have been set aside at Surrey Provincial Court – July 24-27 – for the proceedings.
A preliminary inquiry is used to determine if there is enough evidence to warrant a trial.
Police shut down 176 Street between 8 and 16 avenues while a police negotiator attempted to contact the suspect.
Police said the incident was a dispute that occurred between two men who were known to each other.
The next day, police announced charges against a 70-year-old Kenneth Albert Turpin, including aggravated assault and unlawfully discharge a firearm.
