SURREY – A Surrey teenager has been charged with second-degree murder in the Sept. 24 shooting of 20-year-old Aladdin Ramadan in Burnaby.
The accused, a 16-yearold boy, was arrested in Surrey on Thursday. He cannot be named as the Youth Criminal Justice Act shields his name.
Sgt. Jennifer Pound, of the Integrated Homicide Team, said the arrest happened "in a very public location within Surrey" but she didn’t identify where.
"At the time he was arrested, the suspect was carrying a loaded firearm," she said. "With the assistance of Burnaby RCMP and the LMD emergency response team, a quick arrest was actioned in order to prevent potential harm to police and the public."
