Police in Prince George are investigating a fourth homicide of 2023…

Police say on Saturday, April 1, 2023, just before 8:30 PM, investigators responded to a report of someone in medical distress at a residence on the 2200 block of Quince Street.

When officers arrived at the home a man was located deceased. Evidence collected from the residence indicated the death was suspicious and Prince George RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit took conduct of the investigation.

The investigation is in its early stages and is currently being treated as a homicide.

Investigators have determined the suspicious death reported on March 7, 2023, is also a homicide and that all four murders this year are related to the drug-subculture in Prince George.

Though the violence has been directed towards individuals who are a part of this subculture, police are advising the public that those responsible for these crimes are violent and do not hold public safety in any regard.

Police are taking these threats to public safety seriously and have been working diligently to identify those responsible for the murders.

Investigators have engaged partner agencies such as the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit’s Uniformed Gang Enforcement Team, which traveled to Prince George in early March to conduct targeted enforcement on those engaged with the violent drug subculture.

Investigators are looking to speak with those who have surveillance or dash camera footage of anyone coming or going from the 2200-block of Quince Street between the hours of 8:15 PM and 8:45 PM on April 1, 2023.

You can contact an investigator by calling the Prince George RCMP non­-emergency line at 250-561-3300 or remain anonymous and contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
