WHITE ROCK – Jeffrey Caille, 22, has been charged with second-degree murder, two counts of assault and one count of assault causing bodily harm following an incident Sunday in White Rock that left 61-year-old Bruce Alexander Ridout dead.

According to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, White Rock RCMP attended a home in the 900-block of Ash Street just after 7 p.m. Sunday following several 911 calls about a dispute in progress.

Police arrived to find two injured women and an injured man inside the home. The two women were transported to hospital while Ridout was pronounced dead at the scene. The female victims were treated for their injuries and later released.

IHIT said Caille was seen throwing objects and knives off the balcony before running away and was later nabbed by RCMP.
