LANGLEY, B.C. — Homicide investigators have identified the victim of a targeted shooting in Langley, B.C.
Sgt. Frank Jang with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says 22-year-old Arshdeep Singh died in the late-night attack on Jan. 26.
Jang says Singh's name and photo are being released in an effort to further the investigation, but he provided no other information.
Singh was in the driver's seat of a car parked in a residential area of Langley when it was riddled by gunfire, killing him and injuring a man in the passenger seat.
In the hours after the shooting, Jang confirmed Singh had been known to police and that the murder might have ties to the drug trade.
But he said nothing "glaringly obvious" linked the shooting to the ongoing Metro Vancouver gang conflict.
