Documents show that Grewal was known to police and associated to gang activity – specifically in Abbotsford.
In 2015, Abbotsford police issued a warning about Grewal, as well as two other men believed to be involved in the Townline Hill conflict.
At the time, police said Grewal posed a risk of “significant harm to the safety of the community and anyone who may associate with them.”
“There are people who knew Mr. Grewal that may have information that could help us solve his murder,” Cpl. Frank Jang said. “I urge these individuals to come forward and speak with IHIT.”
Police are expected to give an update on the investigation later this afternoon.
More to come.
