The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) have been deployed to a shooting in Burnaby that left one man dead. 

Burnaby:

On September 13, 2022, at 11:08 p.m., Burnaby RCMP responded to a report of a shooting in the 4700-block of Hastings Street in Burnaby. Frontline officers attended the scene and located one man deceased as a result of gun shot wounds. Shortly after, a burning vehicle was located in the 8200-block of Burnlake Road, Burnaby. IHIT has taken conduct of the investigation and is working closely in partnership with the Burnaby RCMP, BC Coroners Service, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC) and the Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS).

The victim, who has been identified by investigators, is not being named at this time, to allow proper notification to the family.

Investigators are in the area looking for witnesses and collecting CCTV, says Sergeant Timothy Pierotti of IHIT. We’re working closely with our partners to determine if this incident has any connection to the Lower Mainland Gang Conflict.

IHIT is asking any witnesses or anyone who was in the 4700-block of Hastings Street or the 8200-block of Burnlake Road between 10:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. with dash-camera video to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
