Surrey murder accused is only 14
VANCOUVER – A 14-year-old boy has been charged with second degree murder in the stabbing death of Surrey dad Sam McGowan.
McGowan ended up being stabbed through his heart on Wednesday evening while chasing two people who he thought had robbed his young son.
McGowan, 42, was seen chasing after two youngsters in the area of 90th Avenue and 148th Street. He was rushed to hospital but succumbed to his injury.
Police have not commented about the events that led to his death.
The accused juvenile was to appear in Surrey Provincial Court on Friday morning.
“The investigation is still ongoing. Once the investigation has been fully completed, investigators will review the evidence with Crown Counsel, and more charges may be forthcoming,” police said.
Police are asking anyone living in the area where the stabbing took place to come forward if they saw anything.
