Varinder Singh charged in Burnaby shooting that sent woman to hospital

VANCOUVER: 43-year-old Varinder Singh Deo has been charged with aggravated assault in relation to Sunday morning’s shooting of a 25-year-old Surrey woman.

He will appear in Vancouver Provincial Court on Tuesday, May 4 at 9:30 a.m.

The Burnaby RCMP identified and located Deo who they believed was involved in the 4:10 a.m. shooting on Dubois Street, between Joffre Avenue and Boundary Road.

Deo was arrested at a residence in the city, away from the location of the shooting. He remains in custody pending further investigation.

The victim of the shooting, whose name has not been released, is recovering in hospital after being treated for gunshot wounds. The victim’s injuries are now believed to be non-life-threatening.

 “She is speaking with police and cooperating with the investigation,” said Cpl. Brett Cunningham on Sunday.

“We believe this to be a targeted and isolated incident and have no information to suggest the shooting is involved with the Lower Mainland gang conflict. At this time, we do not believe there is an ongoing risk to public safety,” said police.
