Steven Brandon Mulligan has been ordered to stand trial in connection with the alleged murder of a 17-year-old in Surrey last summer.

Adem Aliu was shot in the early morning hours of July 14, 2010 on a street in North Surrey near 103 Avenue and 141 Street. Residents of nearby homes reported hearing raised voices, then the sound of running, then gunshots.

At the time, police said they believed Aliu was killed because he and some friends were slashing tires and kicking cars in North Surrey before being confronted.

Within 15 hours of the fatal shooting, Mulligan, 20, was charged with second-degree murder.

Police said the accused man was known to them and was involved in the gang lifestyle.

Aliu, an Albanian immigrant and student at Guildford Learning Centre, did not have a criminal record and was not known to police.

The murder trial was ordered after a preliminary hearing of the evidence in Surrey Provincial Court that concluded April 19.

The case will now proceed to B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. A date will be set May 19.
