The integrated homicide investigation team was dispatched to Abbotsford, BC, on Tuesday morning after a man was shot and killed inside a home.
Abbotsford police said officers were first called to the home in the 3,500 block of Latimer Street around 10pm on Monday.
When they arrived, they found a 41-year-old man in the lower level of the home suffering from life-threatening injuries.
Despite efforts from first responders, the man died on the spot.
The victim, according to IHIT, has been identified as 41-year-old Chad Colivas.
They release his name to advance their investigation and want to talk to Colivas’ friends and staff in an attempt to build a timeline of his activities in the days leading up to his death.
“We are in the early stages of our investigation; however, early indications are that Mr Colivas’ death is not linked to the gang conflict on the lower mainland,” IHIT spokesman Det. Cpl. Said Sukhi Dhesi in a statement. These are complex files and we encourage anyone with information to come forward to help us gather answers for Mr. Colivas’ family. “
