Screengrab of a video released by police on Sept. 30 that show a suspected shooter running across Fraser Highway on Sept. 28, and back again.

UPDATE: Police release video footage of Surrey shooting suspect

Police want to talk to anyone who recognizes the man; appeal for dash-cam footage

Homicide investigators appealed for information Monday as they released video footage of a shooting suspect after a 29-year-old man was shot dead last Saturday at a gas station in the Clayton area.

Gunfire rang out around 6 p.m. in the 18600-block of Fraser Highway on Sept. 28 and police say a black male “ran away from the shooting site and got into a silver sedan driven by a second black male.”

In one of the videos, the suspected shooter is shown running across four lanes of traffic on Fraser Highway, toward the gas station. Seconds later, he’s seen running back across the street “southbound across Fraser Highway to an awaiting vehicle which we believe is a silver sedan,” said Sergeant Frank Jang of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.

A second video clip released by police shows a silver sedan travelling near the scene, heading northbound on 180th Street.

“We’re looking for witnesses but we’re also looking for dash-cam from drivers who were in the area at 6 o’clock Saturday evening,” Jang told reporters. “If you were in that area, and you recognize this, if it brings back memories, and perhaps you were the driver who almost hit this person, we need to speak with you.”

Police are also appealing for information, video footage and witnesses after a burnt-out vehicle was found in Burnaby that’s believed to have been connected to the incident.

After the shooting, around 10 p.m., Burnaby RCMP received a report of a burnt-out silver sedan in the Willingdon Avenue and Kemp Street.

Specifically, police are interested footage from the Surrey scene, between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday night, and between 6:30 and 8 p.m. at the Burnaby scene.

The Surrey man was gunned down while sitting in a black Mercedes-Benz G-Class vehicle at the Surrey gas pump. The windshield of the vehicle, which was eventually covered with a tarp by the RCMP, had at least eight bullet holes in it.

According to a witness, a masked suspect reportedly approached the SUV and fired up to 10 shots before running from the scene.

Investigators are still making efforts to notify some of the victim’s immediate family members of his death and so his identity will not be released at this time. The victim was known to police and the shooting is believed to be a targeted incident.

“There is a great deal of momentum at this early stage in the investigation,” said Sergeant Frank Jang of IHIT. “Our investigators and partners are diligently collecting the evidence and a phone call from the right witness could be the difference maker in this case.”

IHIT encourages anyone with information to call 1-877-551-4448. To make an anonymous report, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or visit solvecrime.ca.
