That's what the Province is saying....so fucked up. RIP to the victim.

The family of the man shot dead at a Surrey autobody shop late Monday is baffled why anyone would want him dead.

Family members described Mandeep “Mani” Thind, 24, as a happily-married family man and a hard worker who never took a day off.

He worked for a driving company and had no ties to criminal activity, his older sister Pritpal Deol said Tuesday.

Deol said she cannot imagine anyone who would want to hurt her brother.

“He’s a very nice guy, he never fights with anybody,” she said, her voice in a whisper. “He is very friendly.”

Thind was found dead late Monday by Surrey RCMP after they responded to a call at Canadian Auto Body Shop & Paint Ltd. at 134th Street and 76th Avenue.

He was reportedly shot in the face. No arrests had been made as of Tuesday night.

Deol said her family was still in shock as they waited for police to provide details about Thind’s death.

RCMP could not say if the shooting was linked to gang activity.

A family friend said he understood Thind had gone to the autobody shop to buy car insurance.

There was a party at the shop celebrating the birthday of the owner’s nephew, said the friend, who asked not to be identified.

“[A] few other boys join them there,” he said, speaking through an interpreter.

“One of the boys brought over a gun and started shooting to celebrate the occasion. Gun was emptied and a bullet in the chamber fired and killed the victim.”

The friend said Thind was from a good family and didn’t drink or do drugs when he lived in his rented basement suite several years ago.

He believes the shooting was accidental. Area business owners said a barbeque was held at the body shop Monday night.

Kankilal Patel said that when he left his business next door to the body shop, at around 9 p.m. Monday, he saw 10 or 12 people drinking and eating in the garage.

This type of gathering is not unusual, he said.

Each summer there are usually several low-key barbeques at the autobody shop.

Police are asking those who attended the Monday night barbeque to come forward.

Jeetu Patel, Kankilal’s son, said that in past years he sometimes saw drug dealers hanging around the shop.

“I did complain to RCMP and they did come and do some investigation, but never proceeded any further,” he said.

The Patels said they have never had any problems with the people who work at the shop.

“They are good people, to my understanding,” Jeetu said.

He said the shop is owned by a man named Bobby and run by a man named Pushkinder.

Deol said her brother did not frequent the body shop, and probably only went there Monday night for the barbeque.

She said he must have been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The shop’s owner and his nephew returned to the business Tuesday to speak to investigators.

The owner’s Mercedes was seized by police for forensic testing.

Earlier media reports said a white Mercedes was seen fleeing the area shortly after the shooting.

On an online memorial, Thind’s friends pleaded for information last night. “R.I.P Mani. You were an amazing guy who always had a smile on your face,” wrote Robyn Folster. “. . . I can't believe this has happened to you. I saw you not to long ago and you were your happy self. Mani, you were a great friend and I will miss you so very much.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team at 1-877-551-IHIT or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - A woman is recovering after being shot several times in East Vancouver. It happened around 5:30 a.m. police responded to calls of shots fired outside a home at Wellington and East 29th Avenue.

The 49-year-old woman was found on the back patio. She's in stable condition in hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

One man News1130 spoke with lives with his two children two doors down from the shooting, he says he doesn't know the people in the house and says he's shocked it happened in his neighbourhood. "It's usually quiet around here so it's pretty sad. I hope she's okay."

He says he didn't hear anything and was surprised when he walked out his house and was faced with a number of reporters. Police say the shooting is not randon and the victim is not known to them but was living at the home. The suspect is still on the loose. A number of people who were in the house at the time of the shooting are being interviewed by police.

There was also a report of gunfire at Cambie and 33rd early Friday morning, but officers only recovered shell casings.

METRO VANCOUVER — Police want the public’s help in solving the targeted murder of a Lower Mainland man found in a burned-out car in Burnaby last week.

But the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is not planning on telling the public who the victim is — at the request of the 25-year-old’s family.

Sgt. Peter Thiessen said the victim, who he identified as Caucasian, was known to police, but he would not say how.

“To some degree he is known to police at some level. That’s pretty vague, I know. But that’s as far as I can go,” he said Monday.

Asked how the public can help without the victim’s name being released, Thiessen said: “I guess they could call us if they feel they know who the victim is and through some discussions with us, we would know whether they were talking about the same person or not.”

He said the issue of withholding the name was left to the family.

“We are respecting their wishes. This is not our choice,” Thiessen said. “At this point, we are supporting them as best we can.”

The mystery victim was found in a charred vehicle outside an elementary school in the 5600 block of Clinton Avenue about 4 a.m. last Thursday.

The dead man was wearing a thin gold chain around his neck.

Thiessen said public assistance and dental records led to the man being identified by investigators.

Neighbours told reporters last week that they were awakened by an explosion just before 4 a.m. Some claimed to have heard gunshots.

The 25-year-old man found murdered in a burned-out car in Burnaby last week has been identified by police as John William Hanna.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) made the unusual and controversial decision to not initially release the identity of the victim.

However, the Richmond News confirmed from sources the victim was John Hanna, son of Bill Hanna, who owns Hanna Collision in Richmond.
