The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been called to Abbotsford to investigate a suspicious death that occurred in an apartment complex.
Bird said she could not elaborate on what precipitated the call.
A deceased man was found in one of the suites, and Bird said the death was found to be suspicious in nature.
She said the death does not appear to have any links to the Lower Mainland gang conflict.
APD major crime detectives and officers with the forensics identification unit have been on scene all day, and the investigation is now transitioning to IHIT, Bird said.
No further details have been released, including the age of the deceased.
The incident occurred in the McMath apartment building, one of two affordable-housing developments for seniors owned and managed by the Lynnhaven Society on Braun Avenue.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
