The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) is currently investigating a homicide in Bowser. 

On August 31st, emergency services were alerted to reports of an injured person in the 5000 block of Thompson Clark Drive West in Bowser.

Just after 4 a.m., Oceanside RCMP were contacted to assist BC Ambulance, who had arrived on the scene. 

“Upon arrival, members located a person suffering from serious injuries already being treated by both BC Ambulance and the Fire Department,” said Sergeant Chris Manseau, division media relations officer for the BC RCMP.

The individual later succumbed to their injuries. 

 “VIIMCU has been notified and is now investigating. While we are still in the preliminary stages of the investigation.”

The BC Coroners Service is also conducting an investigation, and the name of the deceased was not released.

One person was taken into custody and police believe this was an isolated incident.

”There is no on-going risk to the general public,” said Manseau. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the VIIMCU information line at 250-380-6211.
