Arrested Surrey man believed to be linked to shootings

Chandanjot Singh Gill,18, charged with firearms and drug offences and remains under investigation regarding recent shootings.

Police have arrested a man they believe is connected with a flurry of shootings in Surrey and Delta over the past two months.

Chandanjot Singh Gill, an 18-year-old Surrey man, has been charged with three counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm, one count of possession of a firearm with ammunition, one count of unsafe storage of a firearm, and one count of trafficking in a controlled substance.

There have been 30 shootings in Surrey and Delta since March 9, half of those believed to be linked to a conflict between two groups of drug dealers fighting over turf for their dial-a-dope operations.

Gill’s arrest came after a May 12 search warrant at the residence of a man believed to be involved in the ongoing conflict, police say.

The home in the 7300-block of 123 Street, along with a vehicle, was searched. Bulk marijuana, as well as four rifles and one handgun, were discovered and seized. The guns are currently being forensically examined to determine if there may be any links to any other crimes.

Gill remains in custody and is due in Surrey Provincial Court May 29.

Surrey’s Munroop Singh Hayer, 21, was also arrested and has been charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. He was later released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court June 3.

On April 20, a dedicated tip line was established to gather information about the shootings. To date, there have been 148 calls with 15 being of high value to the investigation. Police continue to ask anyone with information on any of the shootings to call the tip line at 604-915-6566.
