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.
