SURREY (NEWS 1130) — A burnt sedan found within hours of daylight shooting in Surrey is believed to be associated with the suspect, according to investigators.
The Integrated Homicide Investigations Team (IHIT) released a new video of the silver sedan believed to be connected to the fatal shooting on Saturday.
It happened around 6 p.m. when a masked man fired between five to eight shots into a black Mercedes, killing the 29-year-old man inside. The suspect then took off in the vehicle police believe to be the same as one that was found near Willingdon and Kemp Street in Burnaby.
IHIT is looking to the public to help with the investigation by providing dash cam footage of the silver sedan. The suspect is described as black male who fled the scene in the silver sedan with another black male from the Mobile gas station at 188th Street and Fraser Highway.
