Local media have published images of a burnt-out vehicle in Surrey which they claim is the suspects’ getaway car.
Media speculation suggested Sunday’s incident was linked to gang crime, with reports claiming the shooting victim was a “Gang member. ”
Gang violence is on the rise in Metro Vancouver, with another high-profile local incident that described only a few posts on the IHIT Twitter page. A 22-year-old woman named Shana Harris was shot and killed in Surrey in February, and police said in April she believed she was “The involuntary victim of a targeted shooting” and not involved in a gang itself.
It was Shana Harris, 22. She was shot and killed at a house in the Whalley area of Surrey on February 4 at 7:30 a.m. We believe she was the unwitting victim of a targeted shooting. Much has been done on this matter and much remains to be done. If you have any information, please contact us. pic.twitter.com/k1zPNsGVfH

Canadian police have previously said there have been 15 gang-related murders in Metro Vancouver since the start of 2021.
“New groups have entered the gang landscape, which has led to more conflict,” Assistant Comm. Manny Mann, chief officer of the combined forces special unit, told media in late April.
