Surrey RCMP confirmed that there was a shooting and they were looking for a gunman. Later that night, 56-year-old Hong Manh Nguyen was arrested at Vancouver International Airport.
Witnesses at the scene said they believed it was a domestic shooting and that a male inside a home in the area was dead.
Several streets in the area were shut down, and it was believed Nguyen fled the scene in a green 2000 Honda Oddysey van.
