IHIT will be working diligently with the Integrated Forensic Identification Section of the RCMP and the BC Coroners Service to determine what happened that led up to the stabbing.

RCMP could not say if this is where the altercation took place.

Currently, Princess Ave. and Nowell St. are taped off and traffic is being diverted.

Princess Ave. and Nowell St. remains blocked off to traffic.
