The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is calling on the public to help further its investigation into the shooting death of 28-year-old Karman Grewal at the Vancouver International Airport.
Richmond RCMP arrived at the airport around 3 p.m. Sunday and pronounced Grewal, who had gunshot wounds, dead at the scene. Police said a suspect vehicle fled the airport with two or more people inside. That vehicle is described as a red or maroon coloured Honda Pilot.
Shortly after leaving the airport, a shot was fired from the suspect vehicle at a marked police car, striking the windshield. The suspect vehicle was last seen around Sea Island Way and Garden City Road, police said. No police officer or member of the public was harmed.
Then, just before 3:30 p.m., a vehicle was discovered on fire in an alleyway near the 9700 block of Princess Drive in Surrey. Investigators are looking into possible links between this vehicle and the shooting at the airport.
Investigators are asking for dash cam video from the following time periods and locations:
• Around the airport between 2:30 and 2:58 p.m.
• Major highways and roadways between the airport and the 9700 block of Princess Drive in Surrey between 2:58 and 3:24 p.m.
• Around the 9700 block of Princess Drive in Surrey around 3:30 p.m.
“This was yet another brazen daylight fatal shooting linked to the ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict,” said Sergeant Frank Jang of IHIT. “Karman Grewal was well known to police and his murder has all the markings of a targeted gang hit.”
Anyone with information or dash cam video is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
