RCMP investigating city’s fourth homicide of the year

The Prince George RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit is currently investigating the city’s fourth homicide of 2021.

Shortly after 3:30 a.m. on April 22, the Prince George RCMP received notification from staff at the University Hospital of Northern B.C. that man was in the emergency room with traumatic injuries.

The man did not survive and the Serious Crime Unit is currently investigating this as a homicide.

“Preliminary information indicates that prior to arrival at the hospital the male was associated to a residence on the 900 block of Carney Street,” said Const. Jennifer Cooper of the Prince George RCMP. “Police are familiar with this residence as it was the subject of a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act warrant executed by the Street Crew Unit in March of this year. As such, investigators believe this was a targeted attack and there is currently no risk to the public.”

The Serious Crime Unit would like to speak with anyone with a dash-cam who was driving in the area of 10th Avenue and Carney Street the night of April 22nd between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. If you have any information that can aid in this investigation, please call 250-561-3300 to speak with police.

If you have any information about this or any other criminal offence, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477 or online at www.northernbccrimestoppers.ca (English only). You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information that leads to an arrest or recovery of stolen property, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
