An investigation into a Surrey shooting that injured an innocent bystander three years ago has had some major developments, including the arrest of a second suspect, additional charges, and a significant seizure of evidence involving RCMP in other B.C. cities. In addition, police are seeking help in locating a third suspect.
Surrey RCMP stated that on July 8, 2017, a shooting occurred in the 7600 block of 147A Street in Surrey, in which a 62-year-old innocent female bystander visiting from Ontario was injured.
The investigation into a conspiracy to commit murder subsequently expanded to encompass concurrent investigations by Vernon and Kelowna RCMP, including a search warrant at a Kelowna residence.
The combined investigations resulted in police seizing approximately $177,000; significant quantities of fentanyl, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, and ketamine; six firearms; and cellphones.
This year on January 30, 15 separate charges were laid against Abd'l Malik Loubissi-Morris, Tien Roy Mai Dang, and Noah Didhra, including conspiracy to commit an indictable offence; possession of a controlled substance for trafficking; possession of proceeds of crime; and possession of a firearm.
Loubissi-Morris of Vancouver was arrested in Richmond on December 11, 2019, and Dang was arrested on January 30, 2020, without incident.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Didhra and police are seeking to locate him.
Didhra is described as a 21-year-old South Asian male who is 179 centimetres (five-feet, 10-inches) tall and weighs 104 kilograms (230 pounds) with black hair and brown eyes.
