Police hunting man linked to murder

Police are investigating Surrey’s third homicide of the year after Gregory Quesnelle, 32, was shot inside a townhouse at Rodeo Park Place in Cloverdale.

At press time police were looking for Barry McQuarrie, 33, in connection with their investigation. “If located, please do not approach him as he is considered armed and dangerous,” said Sgt. Adam MacIntosh, of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team. Police had not yet laid charges in the shooting.

Yellow police tape surrounded a good part of the townhouse complex at 17445-57 Ave., and part of a commercial complex across the street.

The shooting happened just before midnight Monday.

“IHIT and the Surrey RCMP are working together to determine the motive for this homicide including the possibility of it being domestic related,” MacIntosh said.

Sukhbir Sahota stepped out of her yoga class across the street on Tuesday morning to see what was going on.

“That’s bad, that’s very bad. Crazy,” she said of the shooting. “It’s starting more and more in Surrey.”

Meanwhile, police and firefighters were called to an industrial complex at 192nd Street and 28th Avenue in South Surrey just before midnight Tuesday where they found on fire the stolen 2010 Kia Borrego police had been looking for, in connection with the search of McQuarrie.

Police said McQuarrie is also wanted on unrelated warrants. Quesnelle, they said, is originally from Ontario and had a criminal record.

Anyone with information can call the IHIT tipline at 1-877-551-4448. Quesnelle is Surrey’s third homicide victim this year.
