THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is requesting public assistance to further its ongoing investigation into the shooting death of 18-year-old Austin Grewal.
On April 26, 2019 just after 5 p.m., 18-year-old Mankaran (Austin) Grewal was shot and killed in the area of 176 Street and Abbey Drive in Surrey, B.C. A red Chrysler 300 sedan was identified as being associated to the shooting.
Thanks to the public’s assistance, police recovered a red Chrysler 300 in the area of 201st Street and 123A Avenue in Maple Ridge, B.C. later that evening. Investigators now believe this is the suspect vehicle.
After an extensive canvass of the neighbourhood where the Chrysler 300 was found, IHIT obtained video surveillance footage that shows two males believed to be associated to the vehicle. Investigators are asking anyone with information about the individuals on the video to contact IHIT immediately.
Suspect #1 – Taller of the two, non-white male, skinny build, dark facial hair goatee or beard wearing a light coloured hoodie
Suspect #2 – Shorter of the two, unknown ethnicity, skinny build, no facial hair wearing a black hoodie with a cap underneath carrying a bag on his shoulder
“IHIT detectives continue to actively pursue those responsible for Austin Grewal’s murder,” said IHIT Cpl. Frank Jang on Thursday. “This new video is another important step in the case and could significantly advance the investigation with information from members of the community.”
IHIT says it believes Grewal had gang affiliations.
