RCMP identify men connected to shootings

Mounties are also looking for three vehicles, including a grey VW, a black Acura and a white SUV.

Police are looking for information on five men they say played a role in the recent Surrey shootings, two of them who were victims.

It comes on the heels of six shootings in Surrey in two days.

Only four of the six recent shootings in Surrey are connected and none of them are believed to be gang-related, police say.

Chief Supt. Bill Fordy told a media briefing that the shootings are believed to have been carried out by people in the low-level drug trade.

Indervir Johal, 21 and Pardeep Singh, 20, both from Surrey, suffered gunshot wounds on Tuesday, March 10.

Police are looking for information about Samed Mohammed, 20, and Amrit Kular, 20, both from Surrey and Pardip Brar, 20, of Delta, who they police say are connected with the shootings.

A spate of brazen gunfire began early Tuesday.

Friends brought Johal, who was suffering from gunshot wounds, to hospital at 4 a.m. He was treated and released.

The car believed to be involved was found at 5:50 p.m.

Then about an hour later, police received reports from BC Ambulance Service of another shooting near 127 Street and 78 Avenue. Singh was taken to hospital, also treated and released.

Witnesses told police that four, dark-coloured cars were seen speeding out of the area after the gunshots were heard.

Then on Wednesday, at 1:30 p.m., Mounties responded to a report of a white SUV chasing a black, Acura near 132 Street and 80 Avenue.

Those vehicles fled.

Surrey RCMP believe all of those incidents were related and targeted.

Separately on Wednesday at 11:50 p.m., another man was shot and left near 193 Street and 80 Avenue. The 28-year-old Langley man was taken to hospital and treated. That shooting also appears to be drug-related and targeted, police say.

Then on Thursday, at 3 a.m., police responded to reports of shots being fired at a residence in the area of 94 Avenue and 126 Street. No one was harmed.

Those last two shootings appear to be unconnected to the first four, Fordy said Thursday.

“The four related shootings involved people who are involved in low-level drug activity,” Fordy said. “There is nothing to indicate that these shootings are related to organized crime.

“However, these people are clearly violent, and have shown a complete disregard for public safety.”

He noted that the investigation is at a critical point and he asked for public help.

In addition to the five people named, police are also looking for three vehicles, namely a grey Volkswagen Passat or Jetta, a black Acura TL and a white Sports Utility Vehicle.

Those people and vehicles are believed to have been involved in the four related shootings.

Surrey RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance and asking anyone who may have witnessed any of these shootings or the vehicles involved are asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
