Police have identified the victim of a fatal shooting Friday night in Surrey as Bikramjit Khakh.

Investigators say Khakh, 30, was known to police and had gang affiliations.

Police believe the killing is linked to an ongoing gang conflict in the Lower Mainland but have not released a motive.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is asking for tips from the public on the case, which also involves a vehicle found burned three kilometres from where Khakh was shot.

Investigators say Khakh was found dead at a residence in the 13900 block of 58A Avenue after 7 p.m. PT on Friday. A white, four-door Mercedes sedan was seen driving away from the scene.

Minutes later, Surrey RCMP responded to a vehicle on fire near Colebrook Road and King George Boulevard, about three kilometres from where Khakh was found.

Cpl. Frank Jang of IHIT says the burned car is believed to be the Mercedes.
