    Toronto: In a case of targetted 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 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 and restitution of $2,660, 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 has 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.
