Police are investigating after a man was shot to death on a residential street in Surrey Sunday night.

Officers arrived at a home in the 13900-block of Antrim Road around 8:20 p.m. after receiving reports of an injured man.

A man with critical wounds was rushed to hospital, but later died. IHIT has taken over the case, and identified the victim as 27-year-old Sean Christopher Kelly.

Neighbours say after the shots rang out they heard a car drive away – then police flooded yards in the area looking for a suspect.

“There was a really loud bang that we heard, and [my partner] said, ‘Doesn’t that sound like a gunshot?’” said Anthony, who asked to be referred to by his first name only. “[Police] were in and out of the neighbour’s backyard, they went in everyone’s backyards.”

Some residents say there has been trouble in this neighbourhood before, and they no longer feel safe.

“We don't go for a walk at night, we don't go to the convenience stores - I won't even let my wife fill up for gas,” one man told CTV News. “If you can't do it in the daytime, don't do it at all.”

IHIT has not yet announced if a suspect has been arrested.

On Monday, two men showed up at the scene to speak with police, swearing at CTV News cameras as they drove away.

It's unclear what their relation to the victim - if any - might be. 

Anyone who may have seen anything or has information is requested to call the IHIT Information line at 1-877-551-4448.
