Homicide investigators have been called in after a body was found underneath the Golden Ears Bridge in Maple Ridge.
RCMP said police were called to the 20000-block of Wharf Street to assist firefighters after the discovery of a dead body Sunday morning.
“Upon attendance at the scene, investigators located the body of an adult male who appeared to have been the victim of homicide,” said Sgt. Janet Shoihet, spokeswoman for the Lower Mainland district.
Television footage by CTV News showed men wearing Hells Angels insignia showing up at the scene and interacting with investigators.
RCMP said there are early indications that the man’s death was targeted, but didn’t comment whether the death was related to the Hells Angels or gang activity.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is expected to take over the case in partnership with the Ridge Meadows RCMP.
More than a dozen police cruisers remained at the crime scene for most of Sunday as officers gathered evidence.
Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call IHIT at 1-877-551-4448 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
