Homicide investigators have identified 62-year-old Surrey, B.C., resident Brian Chapman as the fatal victim of a weekend shooting.

The RCMP's Integrated Homicide Investigation Team released Chapman's name in on Wednesday.

According to a news release, Chapman was known to police and, while his death is not believed to be connected to Lower Mainland gang conflict, it is also not being considered a random incident.

Chapman was discovered inside a home near Bear Creek Park on Sunday evening after police were called to the 13500 block of 84th Avenue just before 6 p.m. PT.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, RCMP said Monday.

Police say the actual shooting might have occurred around 7 a.m. PT on Sunday.

Homicide investigators are seeking witnesses who might have heard or seen anything unusual and are requesting dash cam footage from that area.

Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551-4448, or email ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
