SURREY — The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is looking into suspicious death in Newton after a car crashed into a tree last Friday night.

He’d reportedly been shot and went into cardiac arrest but police have not yet confirmed this.

The crash happened at 79th Avenue and 123rd Street, just after 9 p.m.

“We are looking for anyone that may have been in the area at the time of the crash to come forward with information,” Ashton said.

The victim’s name has not been released.
