Surrey police responded to a report of a dropped 911 call in the 9700 block of 161A on May 4th at approximately 9:00pm.

On arrival police located a 20-year-old Keryane Arsenault suffering from a gunshot wound. She was rushed to hospital where she died of her injuries.

We understand the public may be feeling anxious given the recent spate of shootings and homicides in communities across the Lower Mainland, says Sergeant Frank Jang of IHIT. With respect to this most recent fatal shooting, it does not appear to be gang-motivated.

Ali Khudhair, 24, who was known to police was taken into custody without any incident, and has since been charged with second-degree murder. IHIT said Keryane Arsenault was not known to police.

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.
