SURREY — Police are searching for two young men who have been charged in connection to a shooting near Strawberry Hill Elementary school on Sept. 15.
Amarpreet Samra and Shakiel Basra, both 21, have been charged with two counts each to attempt to commit murder and intentionally discharging a firearm.
They remain at large and police warn they are considered armed and dangerous.
Basra is one of several men RCMP identified last April as involved with the turf war going on in the area.
Shots rang out on Sept. 15 around 6 p.m. near the Surrey school. A 22-year-old man was shot but was expected to survive.
Police are looking for a grey Jeep with a Saskatchewan license plate – 685JUD – in connection to the incident.
The shooting brought the city’s tally to 46 since the beginning of March. Police say many are related to a dial-a-dope turf war in the area.
Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP’s dedicated tip line at 604-915-6566. Police warn not to attempt to approach or apprehend the men if spotted, but instead call 911.
