On August 24, 2022 at 11:15 p.m., the Surrey police detachment responded to a report of a man in medical distress inside his residence in the 18800-block of 76 Avenue, Surrey, BC. Officers and Emergency Health Services (EHS) attended the location and found the 47-year-old man having sustained life-threatening injuries. First responders performed emergency first aid, but the victim did not survive. As a result of the nature of the injuries, IHIT has taken conduct of the investigation and is working closely in partnership with the Surrey Detachment, BC Coroner’s Service and the Integrated Forensic Identification Section.
Investigators have identified the victim, who is not being named at this time as investigators work to notify the family.
"We are still in the early stages of the investigation," says Sergeant Timothy Pierotti of IHIT. "Officers have been working throughout the night to locate witnesses who could help shed light on this situation. At this time the motive is unknown, but it believed there are no ties to the lower mainland gang conflict."
IHIT is asking any witnesses or anyone traveling in the 18800 block of 76 Avenue, Surrey between 9:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. with dash cameras, to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at email@example.com.
