Police are asking for public assistance in finding the person responsible for killing a family man and volunteer last month.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is hoping for a break in a homicide that took place in Newton.

It was in the early hours of Saturday, Nov. 21, when Suriderpal Hehar was gunned down near 152 Street and 66 Avenue.

“Hehar was a family man with young children, an active volunteer in his community, and well known by many,” IHIT Sgt. Stephanie Ashton said in a release Friday.

IHIT is asking anyone who was in that area after midnight to contact them.

“It is the people who were moving about in the area who may have information that could move this investigation forward,” Ashton said. “IHIT is also looking for anyone who saw a dark coloured compact sedan moving about the neighbourhood to contact them.”

Police have described it as a targeted shooting and that circumstances indicate, Hehar was the intended victim.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation can call the IHIT tipline by calling 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email at ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca .
