The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has identified the male body found yesterday in the 12300 block of Colebrook Road In Surrey.

Police say the victim found near a ditch Monday morning was 26-six-year old Jaskaran Singh Sandhu of the Lower Mainland.

"Mr. Sandhu was known to police and the victim of a targeted attack," said IHIT Cpl. Adam MacIntosh. "Investigators continue to search for the motive behind his killing, including the possibility of being gang-related."

Investigators will remain at the scene on Colebrook Road for the remainder of Tuesday.

The killing was Surrey's fifth murder in a month.

At least two of the previous shootings were gang-related.
