Two men in the 20s have been charged with first-degree murder in a double homicide in Whistler, B.C.
Police say the BC Prosecution Service has approved the charges against 24-year-old Gursimran Sahota and 20-year-old Tanvir Khakh, both from Surrey.
RCMP say the suspects were arrested on the Sea-to-Sky highway shortly after the shooting on Sunday, which took place in the Whistler Blackcomb resort's village near Sundial Hotel.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said in an earlier statement that a burning vehicle discovered on a Whistler street was believed to be associated with the shooting.
The victims, Satindera Gill and Meninder Dhaliwal, are known to police and the statement says B.C.'s anti-gang unit has already identified Dhaliwal as a person who was a public safety risk because of his connection to gangs.
3 other people were arrested along with the two men charged, but police say the extent of their involvement is still being determined.
