Vancouver – Vancouver Police have identified the victim of the year’s fifth homicide as Harpreet Singh Dhaliwal.

The 31-year-old from Abbotsford died Saturday night after being shot outside a Coal Harbour restaurant.

“We continue to believe this incident was a targeted killing and that Dhaliwal was the intended victim,” says Sergeant Steve Addison, VPD. “While we don’t think there is an immediate risk to the public, it is always shocking and unnerving when gun violence takes place in such a busy, public place.

Homicide detectives continue to investigate. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the tip line at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
