The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has taken conduct of an investigation after two people were shot inside a residence in Maple Ridge, BC.

Background: On July 15, 2022 at 8:40 a.m., the Ridge Meadows RCMP responded to a report of a woman and man suffering from gunshot wounds at a residence in the 22600 block of 119 Avenue, Maple Ridge, BC. Officers on scene provided emergency first aid to the woman, who later succumbed to her injuries in hospital. The man suffered non-life threatening injuries. IHIT has taken conduct of the investigation and is working closely in partnership with the Ridge Meadows RCMP, the BC Coroners Service and the RCMP Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS). The shooting does not appear to be random and there is no known risk to the public at this time.

IHIT is identifying the deceased woman as 35-year-old Cashmere Ali, in hopes of advancing the investigation.
