Cloverdale homicide suspect named by police
Police are searching for Barry McQuarrie, 33, in connection with fatal shooting in Surrey
Police have named 33-year-old Barry McQuarrie as a suspect in the fatal shooting of an unidentified man in a home in the Cloverdale neighbourhood of Surrey, B.C., on Monday night.
Police are also looking for a blue 2010 Kia Borrego — which may have been stolen by the suspect — with the B.C. licence plate 023 WDE.
Anyone who sees McQuarrie or the vehicle is asked to keep their distance and call 911 immediately.
Police say McQuarrie should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached. He is also currently wanted on a series of unrelated warrants.
The shooting was first reported by neighbours, who called RCMP to the home at 17445 57 Avenue near 175 Street in Surrey around midnight on Monday.
The victim was found at the home and was rushed to hospital but could not be saved.
Police have not commented on a possible motive for the shooting, but have said it was likely a domestic incident and does not appear to be linked to drugs or organized crime.
In an earlier statement, Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy said the shooting appeared to be very targeted.
"It relates to a domestic situation. So I think I have a fair degree of confidence in saying the general public is not at risk, that it's a very isolated incident," said Fordy.
Officers spent the night knocking on doors in the area, searching for witnesses. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has take over the case from the RCMP.
