Toronto: In a case of targeted killing,
a 32-year-old Sikh businessman was gunned down outside his
posh home in Vancouver by unidentified persons, Canadian
police said.

A married father of two, Chhminder Singh Gill, died
minutes after he was hit by a flurry of shots midnight on Sunday.

Court records show Gill was found guilty of a 1999
offence in Maple Ridge of "providing false or misleading
information" and sentenced to pay a fine of 3,000 dollars and
restitution of 2,660 dollars, the local media reported.

Paramedics worked on Gill in the garage for about 40
minutes but were unable to save him, police said.

"Investigators are in the process of developing a
profile to see what business relationships he had, what
personal dealings he had," RCMP Cpl Dale Carr of the
Integrated Homicide Investigation Team told the CBC news.

The police made no arrests and have not named any
suspect so far.

Neighbours told the police they heard someone cheering
in a vehicle as it left the scene after the shooting.
"I lost count at five (shots)," an ear-witness said.
"It was not an accident, that`s for sure."

Gill is listed as director of Sumas Valley Berry Farm
Ltd in Abbotsford. He was a partner with Davinder Singh Deol
and his wife in the berry farm.

Gill and his family had not lived in the house for
long.

"He hasn`t even been there for a year," said another
resident on the street.

He was a nice guy who kept to himself, cut his own
lawn and played with his kids, the neighbour said.
