The violent killing has jarred people, especially in the teens' community. Grief workers were sent to their high school where many classmates learned of the deaths.

Trying to make sense

Bhangal's sister said her brother had no enemies and didn't deserve to be shot.

"He was a good kid. Growing up, he was just a happy soul," she said, fighting tears.

"He would go everywhere with me."

Bhangal said her adventurous, charismatic brother had a large circle of friends and girlfriends.

He excelled in sports — karate, football, baseball and soccer — and was a skilled mechanic in an apprenticeship program organized through Frank Hurt Secondary School.

Bhangal said her car-obsessed younger brother dreamed of owning a Mustang and talked cars "all day."

Sister of teen found shot in Surrey says her ' other half ' was a ' good kid ' with no gang links . Parents at Saturday's tournament said the boys' deaths — and victims of gang violence in Surrey — were top of mind.

As far as she knew, he'd only ever been in one fight that was settled years ago and wasn't into drugs or drinking — just friends.

"He wasn't a bad person. I just really want people to know that he wasn't involved in drugs and alcohol. That's not what he was about. If he was, then maybe the pain would hurt less. The reason that this hurts so much is because we all know that he was a good person," said Bhangal.

"You couldn't get mad at that kid."

Her father was quick to hand his daughter the phone, saying he was too overwhelmed with grief to speak.

"He liked everything. He was always smiling and very friendly. He was a really, really nice guy. He was not involved in bad activities. I don't know why this happened to us," said Jassi's father, Paramjit Bhangal.

"How would you feel if your son was taken away from you. They are basically dead on the inside. Their whole life is gone."
