UPDATE: Homicide police investigate assault turned deadly in north Surrey

60-year-old man died at hospital after assault

Homicide detectives are investigating an assault that turned deadly on Sunday afternoon, according to a news release from Surrey RCMP Monday.

Police went to a residence in the 13300-block of 105 Avenue at 2:15 p.m. Sunday to investigate an assault.

RCMP found an unconscious 60-year-old man with injuries “consistent with foul play.”

The man was taken to hospital where he later died, police said, and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has since taken over the investigation.

Police say the area near the homicide will be cordoned off for an “indeterminate” time.

IHIT does not think the death is linked to widespread Lower Mainland gang conflict and was an “isolated targeted event with no continued risk to public safety.”

On Tuesday morning, IHIT spokesman Corporal Frank Jang said there were “no new details” he could release in the case.

“No arrests as of yet,” said Jang.

Anyone with information is asked to call IHIT at 1-877-551-4448, email ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca, or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477.
