The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has determined that the shooting deaths of four victims in a Richmond residence on January 24, 2022, is an isolated incident.
Update: On January 26, 2022 a search warrant was executed allowing homicide investigators to further examine the scene with the assistance of the BC Coroners Service and the Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS). Supported by the Richmond RCMP, IHIT processed the scene and gathered additional evidence. The identity of the victims has now been confirmed but is being withheld pending next of kin notification. They were from the same household and have no associations to gangs or criminal activities.
Based on evidence collected and other information available at scene, homicide investigators have determined that all persons involved in and responsible for the homicide have been accounted for. IHIT is not looking for any additional suspects.
While it is still early in the investigation, this does not appear to be an incident of partner violence. Homicide investigators have confirmed that one of the victims in the household had a firearms licence and had access to a firearm.
This is a tragic loss of life, said Sergeant David Lee of IHIT,
but the community is safe as we have confirmed this is an isolated incident and there are no suspects at large.
Homicide investigators continue to interview witnesses. A timeline of events is being constructed and motive remains to be determined.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at email@example.com.
