Homicide Section investigating overnight suspicious death of young man

For Immediate Release: 07-May-2019 @ 10:16 AM
MRU #: H19R0014

The Edmonton Police Service is investigating the suspicious death of a 21-year-old male that occurred overnight in southwest Edmonton.

Southwest Division patrol members responded to a trouble unknown call at approximately 12:25 a.m. this morning, Tuesday, May 7, 2019, in an apartment parking lot south of 122 Street and the Whitemud Freeway.

 

It was reported to police that the male sustained critical injuries during an altercation with a group of suspects and died on scene, despite attempts by paramedics to save his life.

 

Police do not believe the incident was random at this time, and continue to search for the group of suspects who fled the scene. The Edmonton Medical Examiner has yet to schedule an autopsy.

 

Homicide investigators are urging anyone who may information about this suspicious death to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm
