Detectives have released the name and image of a 29-year-old man they say was likely the victim of a targeted shooting over the weekend, not far from Lougheed Town Centre.
Not long after Saturday’s shooting, investigators were called out to an area near Bainbridge Avenue and Greenwood Street for a vehicle fire.
Gagandeep Sandhu was from Abbotsford. The motive of the shooting, according to detectives, is still not clear.
“[The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team] is working closely with the RCMP’s forensic experts to process both scenes and to determine if they are related,” Sgt. Timothy Pierotti of IHIT said in a press release on Sunday. “We’re asking any witnesses or anyone with dash camera video who was in either area, to please come forward.”
IHIT called to Burnaby to investigate homicide
"Investigators believe the shooting was targeted and there are no further risks to the public."
