ABBOTSFORD (NEWS 1130) – The three men arrested after a deadly shooting in Abbotsford yesterday have since been released from custody and are not facing any charges.
They were picked up in Mission after a chase with police.
The 23-year-old man killed didn’t have a criminal record, but he was known to police. He’s been identified as Satkar Singh Sidhu.
Homicide investigators say this incident was targeted and is linked to other gang violence that has occurred in the Lower Mainland.
“This homicide was a brazen shooting that occurred in a quiet residential neighbourhood, and fortunately no one else was hurt,” says Cpl. Meghan Foster in a release.
“Having association to or involvement with the gang life comes with many risks. There are people who have information about what happened, and they need to step forward.”
