IHIT investigating homicide in Agassiz

Investigators still don’t know the details around how a man, who was injured so badly that he died after being taken to hospital, was hurt in the first place.

The case has been taken over by the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.

Sergeant Bari Emam says a call came in early yesterday morning about a medical emergency.

“It just so happened that the victim of this incident was attempting to get himself to a hospital and was intercepted by emergency personnel who transported the victim to hospital.”

After being taken to hospital, Emam says the victim died from injuries yesterday afternoon.

He adds one person has been taken into custody and that it was not a random act as the suspect and victim are known to each other.
