SURREY, B.C. - An unidentified man has been found shot to death in a Surrey, B.C. home — the week's third gun-related fatality of a Vancouver area resident.
The violence comes just as Vancouver police have identified the victim of Wednesday's drive-by shooting as 44-year-old gangster Ranjit Cheema.
The well-known gangster was gunned down as he entered his vehicle on a residential street in east Vancouver.
Const. Jana McGuinness says people living in the neighbourhood have been shaken by the brazen hit, and that an innocent person could have been hurt.
Police are asking anyone who may have seen a vehicle idling in the area over the last couple of weeks to contact them.
Last Friday's shooting death of Fraser Valley gangster Thomas Gisby at a Starbucks in Mexico has had the RCMP warning of possible retaliation.
