Burnaby Shooting Victim Identified As Jwada Hedar-Kadhim

BURNABY – The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT)  has identified the man killed on January 2, 2018, just before 9 p.m.

The Burnaby RCMP was called to the 6500-block of Telford Avenue after a report of an altercation in the lobby of an apartment building.  Upon police attendance, an adult male victim was located suffering from wounds sustained during the altercation.  Despite all attempts to revive the individual, he succumbed to his injuries while at scene and his death was deemed a homicide.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) now has conduct of the file.

“The victim has been identified as 47-year-old, Jwada Hedar-Kadhim of Burnaby,” says Cpl. Meghan Foster of IHIT.  “Police are looking to speak with anyone that knew Mr. Hedar-Kadhim.”

It remains early in the investigation, but police believe there was a conflict leading up to the homicide and that this was not a random act of violence.

IHIT continues to work with the Burnaby RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Section, and the BC Coroner’s Service to gather and process evidence.  Investigators will remain in the area as the evidence gathering phase is still underway.
