NEWTON — Hong Manh Nguyen, 56, was arrested for murder at Vancouver International Airport on Friday night after a man's body was found in a home in the 8100-block of 145th Street in Surrey.
The victim's name has not yet been released.
Sgt Jennifer Pound, spokeswoman for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said police responded to a 911 call from the residence reporting that a man had been shot.
"The shooting appears to be domestic-related," she said.
Police then launched a manhunt for Nguyen, with a public bulletin warning that he may be armed. He was arrested without incident at the airport just before midnight. Police are still looking for his van, and a gun.
Police have recommended the Nguyen be charged with second-degree murder. He was expected to appear in Surrey provincial court on Monday afternoon.
