SOUTH SURREY – A rare Indo-Canadian member of the Biker gang Hells Angels has been shot dead at a South Surrey Starbucks Friday morning in a gangland hit.
Police have arrested two men following the deadly shooting of Suminder Grewal that took place at a Starbucks drive-thru.
The victim is indeed Grewal was confirmed Postmedia’s gangland expert Kim Bolan, who has written extensively on the lower mainland’s crime groups including many in the South Asian community.
Postmedia reported that “Suminder (Ali) Grewal, a member of the notorious biker gang’s newest B.C. chapter, was shot dead Friday morning at the Southpoint Exchange mall in South Surrey.
Grewal is the second high ranking, a full-patch member of the Hells Angels Hardside chapter, who has been murdered.
Mounties were called to the Starbucks in the Southpoint Exchange Mall at around 9:20 a.m. with reports of gunfire, and arrived to find a man shot.
“Despite all attempts to revive the individual, the male succumbed to his injuries,” Cpl. Elenore Sturko said in a news release.
The RCMP said two suspects tried to drive away from the scene, then attempted to flee on foot, but both were apprehended.
Though few details have been confirmed, authorities said the early indications are that the shooting was targeted. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is being brought in to help with the case.
Police have asked any with information on what happened to call the Surrey RCMP detachment at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS if they want to remain anonymous.
This is a developing story and will be updated as information becomes available. CTV News is at the scene.
Last November, Chad Wilson, 43, another member of the Hells Angels Hardside chapter, was found murdered under the Golden Ears Bridge, Postmedia reported.
Grewal and Wilson were both former members of the gang’s Haney chapter in Pitt Meadows before helping form the Hardside chapter in Surrey in early 2017. Mounties in Surrey reviewed all legal means to block the setting up of clubhouse, but had no legal authority to deny anyone from purchasing or renting a residence.
