Surrey RCMP is currently on scene following a shooting in the 13300 block of King George Boulevard in Surrey that has left one man deceased.
On July 4, 2022 at approximately 4:57 pm, Surrey RCMP was called to a parking lot at the Days Inn Hotel (13373 King George Boulevard) after a report of shots fired was received. Upon police attendance, an adult male victim was located in medical distress suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Despite all attempts to revive the individual they succumbed to their injuries.
To further identify witnesses and associates, the name of the victim is being released. The victim has been identified as 28-year-old Mohamed Abdulrahman Mohamed. Mohamed was from Surrey and was known to police. While still early in the investigation, homicide investigators are able to confirm that this shooting was targeted, but not connected to any other recent shootings. IHIT investigators are able to confirm that Mohamed was involved in drug trafficking but unable to confirm any gang-nexus at this time.
A suspect vehicle described as an older model silver 4 door Infiniti sedan was seen fleeing from the area. Police are investigating whether a burnt out vehicle located a short time later in the area of 96 Avenue and 124 Street is connected to the homicide. No suspect description is currently available, and police are looking for any witnesses or those with dash cam footage from the area to contact police.
The area surrounding the scene will be cordoned off for a significant amount of time. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been called and will be working in partnership with Surrey RCMP. Initial indications are that this was a targeted incident.
Police are currently in the evidence gathering phase; no further information will be provided at this time. Further details and media availability will be handled by the IHIT Media Relations Officer.
Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
