VIDEO: Langley shooting victim identified

Police say Tyrell Sinnott, 20, of Surrey was the targeted victim in the brazen daytime shooting at Langley Sandman Saturday.



Police say Tyrell Sinnott, 20, was the targeted victim in the brazen daytime shooting at the Langley Sandman hotel on Saturday.

Sinnott was in an SUV in the parking lot of the Sandman Signature hotel at 8828 201 St.  around 2 p.m. Saturday when shots were fired into the vehicle.

When police and paramedics arrived, they said citizens that were in the area were desperately trying to help him.  First responders took over resuscitation, but he died from his injuries while at the scene.

On Monday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team identified him as 20-year-old, Tyrell Michael Sinnott, a Surrey resident.  Mr. Sinnott had a criminal record, and was involved in the drug trade.  It remains early in the investigation and any gang associations are unknown, but police believe Mr. Sinnott’s murder to be targeted.

IHIT is working closely with the Langley RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS), and the BC Coroner’s Service.  Investigators will be in the area conducting an extensive video canvass in an effort to capture the events that transpired leading up to the homicide, and in an attempt to identify suspects and any potential getaway vehicles.

“This act of violence was a blatant disregard for the safety of the public, and there are people who have information about what happened.  These individuals are encouraged to contact the police so that we can hold those responsible accountable,” said Cpl. Meghan FOSTER of IHIT.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448), or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.  Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
