UPDATE: Homicide team takes over after man found injured in Surrey dies
A man found injured in an apartment complex in Whalley Monday afternoon has died.
Surrey RCMP were called June 16 at about 2:15 p.m. to an area near 132 Street and 108 Avenue, where they discovered an injured male, who was taken to hospital in serious condition. He later died.
The case is now being handled by the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT).
The cause of death remains unclear and investigators are also uncertain whether the man was injured at the scene or at a different location.
Police say it'll take some time to determine the circumstances.
“[It's] early to say at this point if this was targeted or related to anything," said IHIT Sgt. Bari Emam. "There’s no obvious indication of anything like that.”
The area was cordoned off Monday afternoon and traffic was re-routed.
Anyone with information about the homicide is asked to call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
