IHIT identifies homicide suspect

Police have identified a suspect in Monday night’s deadly shooting in Surrey, and are warning the public he’s considered armed and dangerous.

Barry McQuarrie, 33, hasn’t been charged in the killing but is wanted on a series of unrelated warrants, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team confirmed Tuesday.

Authorities are also searching for a stolen SUV described as a blue 2010 Kia Borrego with B.C. licence plate 023 WDE. Anyone who sees McQuarrie or the vehicle is advised to keep their distance, and asked to call 911 immediately.

The victim, a man in his 30s, was gunned down at a townhouse near 167 Street and 57 Avenue in Surrey’s Cloverdale neighbourhood around midnight.

He was rushed to hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Police said the shooting wasn’t related to drugs or gangs, but believe it was part of an ongoing domestic dispute. RCMP confirmed officers have been to the townhouse before.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 if they wish to remain anonymous
