More than 100 people turned out Friday night to a vigil for the B.C. corrections officer who was shot and killed in Delta last weekend.
Family, friends and supporters laid flowers and candles for Bikramdeep Randhawa, outside Scottsdale Centre Mall where he was gunned down on Saturday.
Many of those in attendance were Randhawa’s colleagues from B.C. Corrections.
“He was just a loving guy,” Randhawa’s brother Dupinder said. “I don’t know how this thing happened to him. I’m still in shock.”
Randhawa was taking additional courses with the goal of becoming an RCMP officer, his brother said.
No suspects have been identified in connection with the fatal shooting.
Delta’s police chief said Tuesday they are investigating if the shooting death was gang-related.
Investigators are working to determine a motive, including whether it was a case of mistaken identity or related to his job.
Randhawa, 29, was a corrections officer who worked at Fraser Regional Correctional Centre since 2016, B.C. Corrections confirmed Monday.
Organizers are asking attendees to wear masks and maintain physical distancing.
