On March 30, 2022 at 15:37 pm, the Coquitlam RCMP and BC Emergency Health Services were called to a sudden death at the 3100-block of Coast Meridian Road, Port Coquitlam, BC. Coquitlam RCMP front line officers attended a private residence and located a 41-year-old deceased man. Parties involved in this altercation are believed to be known to each other.

IHIT investigators are in the area, completing priority tasks and are working closely with the support of the Coquitlam RCMP.

Our investigators are in the evidence collecting stages, says IHIT spokesperson Detective Corporal Sukhi Dhesi. We are working closely with BC Coroners Service to gather evidence to determine what happened.

At this time, there is no indication this incident is connected to the current ongoing Lower Mainland Gang Conflict.
