Cloverdale's Colin Hill

Wife of murdered Cloverdale realtor says he saved the family

Surrey's Khouri Lamar Green appears in court, charged in the deadly shooting of Colin Hill (above) during a break-in Sunday.

Colin Hill paid with his life to protect his family, according to a Facebook post by the popular realtor’s wife.

On Sunday night (July 12), Hill confronted a 22-year-old man trying to break into his home in the 16500-block of 64 Avenue just before midnight. During the confrontation, the suspect shot and killed the 42-year-old Cloverdale resident. The attacker then fled in a stolen vehicle.

Hours later in Burnaby, RCMP were called to reports of a man brandishing a gun in an apartment complex.

They arrested Surrey’s Khouri Lamar Green.

Green appeared briefly in court on Tuesday, facing a charge of second degree murder. He is expected to appear again in court on Sept. 14.

Green has a lengthy history in the court system.

Most recently, he was before the courts related to charges of break and enter, possession of stolen property and resisting or obstructing a peace officer. Several other charges were mostly related to possession of stolen property or break and enter.

In her Facebook post, Hill’s wife Becky Zhou said he led the would-be robber outside so as to give the family time to hide.

“Colin is the best real estate agent, very protective father (and) very best husband a person could ever ask for,” she wrote, asking for for personal space and privacy during this difficult time.

Hill was a realtor with Sutton Premier Realty, as is his wife.

“The Sutton Premier family are very sorry for the loss of our colleague and friend Colin Hill,” the company posted on Facebook this week. “Colin was an amazing addition to our office always maintaining professionalism and keeping Real Estate to the higher standard. Colin was a great husband, father, friend and will live on in our hearts and memories forever.”
