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 their names can advance the investigation.

The triple shooting “was confined to a parking lot and around a 2010 black BMW X5,” police said.

“At this time, we (are) unable to specify which two (victims) have died for safety reasons,” Lee told Global News on Saturday.

“The third victim is still in hospital with life-threatening injuries.”

“We can confirm the three victims were together. They arrived at the South Surrey Athletic Park around 2:27 p.m. in a black BMW X5.

“The shooter approached them, then the shooting occurred.”
