B.C. mur­der sus­pect has links to Cal­gary, Ed­mon­ton, po­lice warn

Calgary Herald - - CITY + REGION -

SUR­REY, B.C. Po­lice in Bri­tish Columbia now say a man wanted for first-de­gree mur­der has as­so­ciates in Ed­mon­ton and Cal­gary and res­i­dents in those cities are urged to be on the look­out for him.

The In­te­grated Homi­cide In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team says 27-year-old Bran­don Teix­eira re­mains at large but is be­lieved to be some­where in B.C.’s Lower Main­land.

He is wanted for the Oct. 23, 2017 shoot­ing death of Sur­rey res­i­dent Nicholas Khabra.

Teix­eira is de­scribed as 5 foot 10, 161 lbs., with brown hair and eyes, a snake tat­too on his left chest and a sleeve tat­too on his left arm.

When the ar­rest war­rant was is­sued last week, homi­cide team spokesman Cpl. Frank Jang said Teix­eira is “be­lieved to be ex­tremely vi­o­lent and poses a sig­nif­i­cant risk to pub­lic safety.”

Any­one spot­ting the man is warned not to ap­proach him and to im­me­di­ately call 911.
