South Surrey homicide victim is David Goldstein of White Rock

THE male who was shot in a home at 24 Avenue and 152A Street on April 6 has succumbed to his injuries and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has identified him as David Goldstein from White Rock to further advance the investigation and identify potential witnesses.

On April 6 at around 1:30 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to shots fired at the home. First responders found a 33-year-old man with critical injuries. He was transported to hospital for treatment and has now passed away.

IHIT is working in partnership with Surrey RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS), and the BC Coroners Service to gather priority evidence. Homicide investigators are speaking to witnesses and continuing their canvassing.  At this time, the shooting does not appear random and is not connected to the ongoing Lower Mainland Gang Conflict. 

IHIT is looking to speak to anyone who knew Goldstein or the activity at that residence. Homicide investigators are also interested in gathering surveillance video or dash-cam footage from the area of 24 Avenue and 152A Street on April 6 at around 1:30 a.m. 

“We are looking to establish a timeline of events,” said IHIT Sgt. David Lee. “We ask Mr. Goldstein’s associates to come forward and provide information key to this investigation.” 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at
