A 21-year-old Vancouver man is dead following a double stabbing early Friday morning in Guildford.
At around 1 a.m. Friday, Surrey RCMP received a call regarding a fight at the intersection of 154th Street and 100th Avenue. When police arrived, they found two men suffering from stab wounds. One, 21-year-old Kyle Yellowbird of Vancouver, later died from his injuries while the other, aged 17, remains in stable condition.
According to police, Yellowbird was part of a group that had been drinking at a nearby lake. Afterward, the group was crossing the street when a Honda Civic sped past, nearly hitting them. As the car passed, the 17-year-old allegedly kicked the vehicle, prompting the driver to get out. In the ensuing fight, Yellowbird and the 17-yearold were allegedly stabbed. "We do have a person of interest, but nobody has been arrested," said Sgt. Adam MacIntosh of IHIT.
The death marks Surrey's 15th murder of the year and pushes the city's tally past last year's total count of 14 homicides.
