“Twenty-two year old Arun Paul Singh Bains was rushed to hospital earlier this morning but succumbed to his injuries.”
Sergeant Stephanie Ashton with IHIT has identified the victim in this morning’s Surrey shooting.
Ashton says Bains had ties to street-level drug trade.
He was the nephew of local M-P Harry Bains.
Sergeant Dale Carr with Surrey RCMP has a message for those involved:
“This is not just gunplay back and forth. This has turned into murder. And it’s going to take another life of a young person; a young man. And we’re deeply concerned as a police agency and as a community.””
The shooting happened near 126 and 88th just before 3:00 this morning.
Investigators are now focusing on finding witnesses.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact IHIT.
