Canada: 51-year-old Barinder Singh shot dead, daughter injured in Edmonton

Barinder Singh, a resident of Edmonton, was shot dead by unknown persons, and his 21-year-old daughter was also injured in the attack.

At approximately 2:45 a.m. this morning, Sunday, Jan. 1, 2023, Southeast Branch patrol officers responded to the report of a disturbance at a residence in the area of 16 A Avenue and 38 Street. Upon arrival, officers located an injured male and female.

EMS responded, treated and transported the 51-year-old man to hospital, however, he succumbed to injuries. The 21-year-old woman was also taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. She remains in hospital at this time.
