Campbell River man dead after altercation

Police have a 17-year-old in custody after an altercation last night

A violent altercation has left an 18-year-old man dead, the second such incident in Campbell River in less than a year.

Police have a 17-year-old in custody after an altercation in Campbell River last night left one man dead.

Police attended a home in the 500 block of Hilchey Road just before midnight last night. They found an injured 18-year-old man and provided first aid until an ambulance arrived. The injured man was taken to Campbell River hospital but could not be revived.

A police service dog was called and the 17 year suspect was located.

“This was not a random act of violence,” Staff Sgt. Troy Beauregard of the Campbell River RCMP said in a press release. “The suspect and the victim were known to each other.”

No further information was available.

Last October 18, Campbell River RCMP responded to a 911 call to assist an ambulance with an unresponsive male outside a residence on Alpine Road at Dogwood Street.

Campbell River RCMP and BC Ambulance Service attended and found the male was deceased. Campbell River RCMP Major Crime Unit and Forensic Identification Unit attended and treated his death as suspicious, Campbell River RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Poppy Hallam said.

No arrest has been made in the case.
