If you live near the Edmonds SkyTrain station, expect that area to be cordoned off with police tape for a “significant amount of time”, as investigators probe a suspicious death.
Shots rang out last night just after 8pm in the 7300-block of Sandborne Avenue, prompting concerned citizens to call 9-1-1.
A police search turned up the body of a man located in the Byrne Creek Urban Trail.
Burnaby RCMP Sgt. Derek Thibodeau says The Integrated Homicide Investigation team is now the lead on the investigation.
“We do not believe this incident is connected to any other Burnaby RCMP investigations.”
Thibodeau says residents reported hearing the gun shots around 8 p.m.
“When police arrived on scene they began to search the area including the Byrne Creek Trail. The search continued throughout the night and in the morning police discovered a body in the trail.”
