A 32-year-old man died yesterday following a targeted shooting in an upscale Surrey neighbourhood, RCMP said.

The man, who has not been publicly identified by police, was shot multiple times at his Morgan Creek home around 12:30 a.m.

At the time of the shooting, the man had just arrived at the home in the 3700 block of 156th Street where he lived with his wife and children, RCMP Cpl. Dale Carr said.

“He was in his garage, returning into his home when he was shot,” Carr said.

Police found the man inside the garage suffering from a number of bullet wounds.

They started first aid, but the man was pronounced dead 40 minutes later.

While investigators said the incident appears targeted, police are not saying whether there are links to gangs, drugs or organized crime.

An autopsy will take place today or tomorrow.

Around noon, investigators had cordoned off the intersection of 156th Street and 37A Avenue and were canvassing neighbours. A blue tarp covered the garage.

The body was removed in a white van a few minutes before 1 p.m.
