METRO VANCOUVER — Homicide investigators still don’t have a motive in the targeted murder last month of Surinderpal Hehar in Surrey.
The longshoreman and community volunteer had just been picked up for work when the vehicle he was in was sprayed with gunfire.
Hehar, 47, was killed and his co-worker was injured in the attack early Nov. 21 near 152nd Street and 66 A Avenue.
Sgt. Stephanie Ashton, of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said police believe Hehar was the target of the shooting.
She said investigators continue to seek witnesses to the murder.
“Mr. Hehar was a family man with young children, an active volunteer in his community, and well known by many,” she said. “IHIT investigators are asking those people who were driving or walking near 152nd Street and 66A Avenue, after midnight on November 21, 2015, to contact them.”
She said potential witnesses may not realize they saw or heard something important like “seeing a person who didn’t fit in or a suspicious vehicle.”
“IHIT is also looking for anyone who saw a dark coloured compact sedan moving about the neighbourhood to contact them,” she said. “While a motive for this murder has not been established the circumstances indicate this was a targeted shooting.”
People with information should call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Hehar was a long-time volunteer with the Surrey Field Hockey Club and former player.
