IHIT appeals for dashcam footage after fatal shooting in Richmond

Drivers who were parked at Lansdowne Mall on Jan. 9 are asked to check their dashcams for footage.

Homicide investigators are asking drivers to check their dashcam footage following a fatal shooting earlier this month.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is asking anyone who was in the parking lot of Lansdowne Centre, 5300 No. 3 Road, on Saturday, Jan. 9 between 6 and 8 p.m. to come forward if they still have their dashcam footage.

If so, the public is asked to immediately call 1-877-551-4448.

The victim of the shooting, Dilraj Johal, was found with “multiple gunshot wounds” in his condo near Lansdowne and No.3 roads on Jan. 9.

He later died of his injuries after being transported to the hospital.

According to Sgt. Frank Jang, spokesperson with IHIT, Johal was known to police and his shooting is believed to be targeted.

This was Richmond’s second fatal shooting within a period of three days and investigators believe the incident is related to the ongoing gang conflict in the Lower Mainland.
