SURREY, B.C. — Homicide detectives in Metro Vancouver have identified the man killed Monday in an attack in north Surrey.
A statement from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, the unit that investigates most homicides occurring across the Lower Mainland, says officers were called to a Surrey home and found 30-year-old Andrew Baldwin suffering from critical injuries.
Baldwin was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead.
Sgt. Frank Jang says a suspect wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants with reflective material around the bottom of the pant leg, fled before officers arrived.
Efforts are underway to identify that person and determine a motive for the attack.
Investigators have not said how Baldwin was injured but they said Tuesday that the slaying did not appear random, although they did not believe it was linked to gang activity.
