Police have identified a man found critically injured in an apartment complex in Whalley Monday afternoon as Surrey resident Shaunce Poirier.

He was discovered at about 2:25 p.m. June 16 in a building near 132 Street and 108 Avenue. He was rushed to hospital but later died.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said the 33-year-old's death was targeted.

“We are continuing our investigation into this murder and at this point our investigators have determined that this was not a random act,” said Sgt. Bari Eman, spokesperson for IHIT.

Police did not release the cause of death or whether Poirier was injured at the scene or at a different location. The victim was known to police.

Anyone with information about the homicide is asked to call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 or to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or solvecrime.ca
