An Edmonton man has been identified as the victim of a shooting in Surrey, BC, on Tuesday.

Homicide investigators say 27-year-old Richard Ofosuhene was found Tuesday morning, injured and unresponsive in the driver’s seat of a car with the engine running.

Surrey RCMP said they responded to calls at 9:25 a.m. Tuesday, reporting a person had passed out in a vehicle in the 8800 block of 127 Street. Despite efforts to revive him, Ofosuhene died at the scene.

Police say he is known to police and is related to drug trafficking in Alberta. However, they believe that his murder was an isolated incident.

A statement from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said a motive has not been established but the shooting does not appear to be connected to Metro Vancouver’s ongoing gang violence.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses or dashcam video from anyone in the northwest Surrey area between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on September 20.

Witnesses are asked to call IHIT at 1-877-551-4448 or email them at [email protected]
