On June 18, 2023, at 8:27 p.m. the Surrey RCMP received a report of a shooting at the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara at 7050 120 Street, Surrey. First responding members located a man, later identified as 45-year old Hardeep Singh Nijjar, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds inside a vehicle. Sadly, Mr. Nijjar succumbed to his injuries on scene. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took conduct of the investigation and continues to work closely in partnership with the Surrey RCMP, the RCMP Forensic Identification Service and the BC Coroners Service.
On July 21, 2023, IHIT investigators released information to the public advising of the believed route taken by the two suspects following the murder.
Investigators now believe they have identified the vehicle which was waiting for the suspects in the area of 121 Street and 68 Avenue. The vehicle is described as a Silver 2008 Toyota Camry.
We believe the driver of this vehicle was waiting on 121 Street in the Camry for the two initial suspects prior to and while the murder took place, says Sgt. Timothy Pierotti of IHIT.
Investigators have now confirmed there was a third suspect involved in the murder. If you recognize this vehicle or the driver, please contact IHIT immediately.
