Police say ‘tragic, isolated’ altercation occurred in the 1600-block of 160 Street early Friday

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has announced that a 46-year-old man was the victim of this morning’s fatal shooting in South Surrey.

“This appears to be a tragic and isolated incident,” IHIT Const. Harrison Mohr added in a news release issued just before 12:30 p.m.

“Our thoughts are with the victim’s family, and our team of investigators are working diligently to try to find the answers his family needs, as well as the answers we need for a successful investigation.”

Police responded to an altercation in the 1600-block of 160 Street at approximately 12:30 a.m. Friday.

“Upon police attendance, an adult victim was located suffering from gunshot wounds,” a release issued by Surrey RCMP at approximately 3:30 a.m. stated.

“Despite all attempts to revive the individual the victim succumbed to their injuries.”

At 10:30 a.m., Surrey RCMP announced on Twitter that two males had been arrested in connection with the incident and remain in custody.

According to the IHIT release, both suspects were known to the victim, “and police do not believe that there are any outstanding suspects.”

Investigators at the scene Friday morning were focusing attention on a house on the southwest corner of 160 Street and Alder Place. Police tape could be seen in the backyard.

Police have advised that traffic will be affected in the area “for an unknown amount of time,” with 160 Street originally closed in both directions between 16 Avenue and Alder Place. At 8:45 a.m., southbound traffic on 160 Street was being diverted at Lilac Drive. As of 12:30 p.m., the thoroughfare remained closed.
