RICHMOND (NEWS 1130) – Investigators have identified the victim in yesterday’s homicide in Richmond.
Ibrahim Amjad Ibrahim was one of five men the Surrey RCMP had warned the public about months ago, believing they posed a threat to public safety amid targeted shootings.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) says Ibrahim appears to have sustained gunshot wounds, and his death is being treated as suspicious.
He was known to police and associated with gangs, but Mounties say it is still too early to tell whether these associations are the reason for his murder. A motive has not yet been identified.
Mounties were called to the area of Garden City Road and Granville Avenue just after 4:15 a.m. Tuesday.
“This is yet another life that has been lost too soon. It is a reminder that if you are involved in or associated to criminal activity, then you are not immune to its inherent dangers,” says Cpl. Frank Jang of IHIT.
IHIT is working alongside Mounties, Forensics teams and the BC Coroner’s Service.
“Anyone in the area of the parking lot of Garden City Park during the overnight period of October 9th is asked to contact IHIT.”
You’re asked to call IHIT at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at email@example.com, or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
