Brother of man killed in Surrey Remembrance Day recently shot dead in Chilliwack

Homicide investigators call on public to help find suspect last seen on 124th Street

The brother of a man killed in Surrey on Remembrance Day was shot dead three weeks prior in downtown Chilliwack.

Police have identified the Surrey homicide victim as 30-year-old Andrew Baldwin.

Surrey RCMP first responded to the scene in the 10700-block of 124th Street just before 5 p.m. on Nov. 11 after a report of a “call for assistance from a home.”

Police say Baldwin was found unresponsive at the scene with critical injuries. He was pronounced dead at hospital.

The Integrated Police Dog Services was brought in to conduct a search for the suspect, who police say was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants with reflective material around the bottom of the pant leg. He was last seen northbound on 124th Street from the scene.

Three weeks earlier, on Oct. 22, 27-year-old Keith Matthew Baldwin was shot in downtown Chilliwack. He died later in hospital.

There is so far no information to suggest the killings were connected. Keith Baldwin’s murder was described as targeted, but the same has not yet been said about Andrew Baldwin’s.

No arrests have been made in either case.

Meantime, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has since taken conduct of the Surrey case and is working closely with the Surrey RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Services and the B.C. Coroners Service to gather further evidence.

The investigation is still in its early stages and investigators are working to determine a motive.

“We urge anyone with details of Andrew Baldwin’s activities before his unfortunate death, to come forward and speak to investigators,” said Sergeant Frank Jang of IHIT in a release. “We also urge any witnesses and drivers with dash cam video who were in the area of Old Yale and Scott Road to contact us, so we can ultimately determine those responsible.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551- IHIT (4448), or email ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.

Should you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or solvecrime.ca.
