Facebook memorial for Surrey shooting victim

SURREY — The Surrey Field Hockey Club is mourning the loss of a member after Surinderpal Singh Hehar and another man were shot early Saturday in Newton.

Hehar, 45, died but the other man survived after both were shot inside a car in the 15000 block of 66th Avenue just after midnight.

Sgt. Stephanie Ashton, of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said “investigators believe this to be a targeted shooting however at this point there is no indication this shooting has any connection to any other investigation within the Surrey area.”

They have yet to make an arrest.

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email investigators at ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca

This was the 51st shooting in the Surrey and North Delta area since the beginning of March. Police believe many are linked to a dial-a-dope turf war.

The Surrey Field Hockey Club’s Facebook page contains well over a hundred comments from mourners. Some described Hehar as “a great guy on and off the field,” a “great human being” and a “great individual always smiling.”

Meanwhile, police are also investigating a shooting at another house in Newton, in the 14200-block of 62A Avenue, that happened late Monday night. “The home was occupied but no one was injured in the home,” Surrey RCMP Sgt. Paul Hayes said.

Witnesses saw a masked South Asian man running from the scene.

“Police also received calls from within the residence reporting that shots were fired toward two people who were in the garage,” Hayes added. “The two intended victims are known to police and it is believed that this was a targeted attack. At this point, the victims are not being cooperative with police.”

That was shooting number 52.
