IHIT Called In After Male Victim Dies of His Injuries

Abbotsford, BC – The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken conduct of an investigation that began as a shooting incident and is now a homicide after the victim died in hospital yesterday.

On November 12, 2018, at 3:30 pm, Abbotsford Police responded to multiple reports of shots fired at the intersection of Ross Road and Simpson Road. When first responders arrived, they found a male in medical distress. The male was transported to hospital by air ambulance and despite life-saving efforts, died of his injuries. IHIT was called in and has taken conduct of the investigation. Investigators would like to speak to anyone with information, or who may have video in the area Ross Road and Simpson Road in Abbotsford. The male victim’s name is not being released at this time.

IHIT continues to work closely with its partners, utilizing the expertise of the Abbotsford Police Department and its Forensic Identification Section, along with the BC Coroners Service.

This shooting occurred near a public school, a blatant disregard for the safety of the community. We are fortunate that school was not in session at this time, says Corporal David Lee of IHIT. We believe this incident was not random, and is linked to the ongoing gang conflict in the lower mainland.

Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551- IHIT (4448), or by email at [email protected]

Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
