The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has taken conduct of an investigation after a shooting in Chilliwack, BC, left one man dead.

Background:

On December 13, 2022 at around 6 p.m., the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment RCMP (UFVRD) responded to a shooting in the 9700-block of Windsor Street, Chilliwack, BC. Chilliwack RCMP responded and located a 34-year old man, suffering from gun shot wounds. The victim was transported to local hospital by first responders where, sadly, he succumbed to his injuries. IHIT has taken conduct of the investigation and is working closely in partnership with the UFVRD Chilliwack RCMP, the BC Coroners Service and the RCMP Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS).

A short time later, UFVRD were notified of a vehicle fire in the 46700-block of Bailey Road, Chilliwack. IHIT is working with the Chilliwack RCMP and their forensic experts to determine if the two incidents are connected.

Investigators are now identifying the victim as 34-year old Michael D’Lerma of Chilliwack, in hopes of advancing the investigation.
