Twenty-fourth homicide in Surrey a targeted attack: IHIT

SURREY (NEWS1130) – Surrey’s latest homicide is believed to have been a targeted attack.

Homicide investigators say 23-year-old Philip Oun was known to police and involved in criminal activity. “IHIT investigators along with the Surrey RCMP have resources in place and are working to determine the motive for the killing.” says Sgt. Adam MacIntosh of IHIT.

Oun’s body was found in the area of 124 Street and 102 Avenue around 11 a.m. yesterday.

“I want to assure Surrey residents that they are safe, unless they involve themselves in high risk activities and lifestyles that put them in danger or at risk for harm. The victim in this latest incident is another in a long list of persons who have become victims because of their lifestyle. The unfortunate ultimate reality of a criminal lifestyle, as I have said so many times before is jail or death. If you involve yourself in this level of criminal activity, the likelihood of ending up dead in a ditch or in jail is very high; actually I would say it is inevitable,” says RCMP Chief Superintendent Bill Fordy.

Investigators are looking for Oun’s vehicle; a blue, 2008 Chrysler Sebring with BC License 741 TMP.
