A stolen Kia SUV linked to a fatal shooting in Cloverdale, B.C. on Monday night, was found burning in an industrial area of Surrey on Tuesday night, but the suspect in the shooting incident remains at large.
Just before midnight the Surrey RCMP and Surrey Fire Department were called to the industrial complex at 192 Street and 28 Avenue when a vehicle was reported on fire.
"The fire was extinguished and identified as the outstanding stolen 2010 Kia Borrego that investigators have been looking for," said a statement issued by police.
Barry McQuarrie, 33, is wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of Gregory Quesnelle, originally from southern Ontario, in the Cloverdale neighbourhood townhome.
Police warn 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.
