Early morning shooting leaves one dead

Surrey RCMP is advising the public of an investigation into the death of an injured man located in a vehicle and requesting anyone with information to contact police.

On September 20, 2022, at approximately 9:25 a.m. Surrey RCMP received a reported of a person passed out in a running vehicle in the 8800-block of 127 Street. First responders arrived on scene and located an injured person who was unresponsive. Despite lifesaving efforts, the person did not survive.

Criminality is believed to be a factor, therefore, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been deployed and will be working in partnership with the Surrey RCMP.

IHIT has identified the victim as 27-year old Richard Ofosuhene, from Edmonton, Alberta. Mr. Ofosuhene was known to police and had ties to drug trafficking in Alberta. Investigators believe this is an isolated incident which does not appear to be connected to the Lower Mainland gang conflict. A motive has yet to be confirmed.

The area surrounding the scene was cordoned off for a significant amount of time. Officers are interviewed witnesses and canvased the area for further information and evidence. There are no more details at this time.
