Police investigate another fatal shooting in Surrey

36-year-old man dead after being found unresponsive and suffering gunshot wounds in 7400-block of Sinclair Crescent.

A 36-year-old man is dead after being found unresponsive in his vehicle in Surrey Thursday night.

On Thursday, just after 8 p.m., the Surrey RCMP was asked to check the well-being of male found unresponsive in his vehicle in the 7400-block of Sinclair Crescent.

When police arrived, the unresponsive male was located deceased from injuries that appeared to be gunshot wounds.  The investigation was deemed a homicide and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took conduct.

IHIT is working closely with the Surrey RCMP, the BC Coroners Service, and IFIS to gather and process evidence. The area surrounding the crime scene has been cleared by police, but neighbourhood canvassing will continue throughout today.

It is early in the investigation, but this shooting appears to be a targeted act. It is unknown if this homicide is linked to other recent shootings, or the murder of Karanpartap Wariach that occurred on Jan. 23.

The male victim has been identified as 36-year-old Maple Ridge resident Hershan “Shawn” Bains.

Cpl. Meghan Foster of IHIT says, “This homicide is believed to be a targeted act, and there are people who have information about what occurred. It’s imperative that they step forward and contact police so that those responsible are held accountable.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448), or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. Should you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
