Crime Stoppers is offering a reward in exchange for information related to a double homicide in Richmond earlier this month.
Witnesses or people with information regarding the shooting of 23-year-old Kevin Allaraj, and 22-year-old Jeevan Saepan are being offered a reward of up to $5,000 upon the arrest and charge of the suspect(s).
People with information will not be asked their name or have to appear in court.
Allaraj and Saepan were shot and killed on Ackroyd Road at around 11 a.m. on June 4, and both, said police, were from the Lower Mainland and were known to police.
Half an hour after the shooting, Surrey RCMP responded to a vehicle fire in the area of 114 STreet and 96A Avenue.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) believes the fire was connected to the shootings.
IHIT is seeking dashcam footage, CCTV, or witnesses from the areas around both scenes.
The scene in Richmond is specific to the 7000-block of Ackroyd Road between 9 a.m. and noon on June 4.
The scene in Surrey is specific to the 11400-block of 96A Avenue, between 10 a.m. and noon on June 4.
“This was a brazen shooting in a parkade during mid-day hours,” said Sgt. David Lee, of IHIT.
“It shows a disregard of greater public safety and that criminal activities cross city boundaries. IHIT is taking full advantage of the resources of the integrated teams and regional RCMP detachments.”
Anyone with information is being asked to call IHIT on the Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
