An altercation in Burnaby Thursday morning has led to the deployment of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team. 

Background:

On June 29, 2023 at 7:05 a.m., the Burnaby RCMP received a report of an incident at a residence in the 7600-block of 17 Avenue, Burnaby. Upon attendance, members located a 19-year old man, associated to the residence suffering from life-threatening injuries. Despite the best efforts of the first responders, the victim succumbed to his injuries on scene. A second victim was located with non-life-threatening injuries. IHIT took conduct of the investigation and has continued to work closely in partnership with the Burnaby RCMP Detachment, BC Coroners Service and the Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS).
