Police believe car stolen in Surrey used in Richmond homicide

Police believe Jasdeep Singh Klair, 24, was shot while driving, lost consciousness and crashed

Homicide investigators believe a car that had been reported stolen in Surrey in March was used in a fatal shooting in Richmond on Sunday afternoon.

It is an orange-reddish 2010 Kia Forte, similar to the one pictured.

Police believe Jasdeep Singh Klair, 24, was shot while driving, lost consciousness and crashed at Granville Avenue and Ledway Road.

“Mr. Klair is known to police and this shooting is believed to be targeted,” said Staff Sergeant Jennifer Pound, spokeswoman for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team. “Despite many individuals in the area hearing the gunfire, police did not receive any calls to attend for shots fired, but rather were called for the car crash following the shooting.

“It appears there was a suspect vehicle in the Lindsay Road neighbourhood that fled the scene after shooting at Mr. Klair,” Pound said. It was found in the 4400-block of Thompson Road less than an hour after the shooting.

“This homicide occurred in a heavily populated residential area at a busy time of day,” Pound said. “Due to the distinct description of this vehicle police believe there are individuals who can assist in bringing further information forward and/or assist by identifying the occupant or occupants of the suspect vehicle,” Pound said.

Police ask anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers or the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448.
