On February 10, 2022, the Coquitlam RCMP responded to a report of a stabbing in the area of 228 Schoolhouse Street, in Coquitlam. On arrival, first responders found a 66-year old man suffering from stab wounds. The victim, later identified as Terry Miller, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
