A brazen public shooting in South Surrey that left two men dead has been under investigation by the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team since the incident occurred on July 30.
Police are now naming the three victims but do not specify which victims have died.
“IHIT is identifying the victims as 26-year-old Harbir Khosa, 20-year-old Robeen Soreni, and 19-year-old Jordan Krishna,” Sgt. David Lee said.
“Khosa and Krishna are both known to police and all three victims are from Surrey.”
Investigators hope the release of the victim’s names can advance the investigation.
