Delta Police say the homicide of an off-duty BC Corrections Officer in a Walmart Parking lot in North Delta last year, was a case of mistaken identity.

It was on May 1, 2021 that Bikramdeep Randhawa was shot and killed.

The Delta Police Department Major Crime Section took conduct of the investigation and, during the past year, have conducted extensive interviews and completed more than 300 follow-up tasks trying to identify and charge those individuals responsible.

DPD said in a May 3 news release that as a result of the evidence secured to date, investigators are confident that Randhawa’s murder was a result of mistaken identity. “Investigators believe that Randhawa’s killers mistook him for an individual involved in the ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict,” said DPD in the news release. “Investigators are confident they have identified the suspects involved in this murder.”

Police say the investigation is active, and DPD have been working with other partnering agencies to hold those responsible for this murder accountable.

“It is not lost on the investigative team or the Delta Police as a whole the tragedy of seeing an innocent person caught up in the senseless violence of the ongoing gang conflict that cost a life,” added Deputy Chief Harj Sidhu.

Delta Police would like to publicly extend to Randhawa’s family and BC Corrections Services that this investigation continues to be a priority.

DPD say their investigators know that there are individuals with specific and valuable knowledge of this murder, and are asking that they or anyone else with information contact the Delta Police at 604-946-4411 or if they wish to remain anonymous to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
