VANCOUVER – It has been five years since the death of 28-year-old Brandon Hughes, who was shot when he returning home after the Celebration of Lights Fireworks show in Vancouver.

“The investigation remains open and active,” says Sgt. Adam MacIntosh of IHIT. “Time and distance can be a factor in our favour in historical investigations. There are people out there who know what happened and we need them to come forward.”

Hughes was at the gate to his home when he was shot and his father Kevin tried desperately to save him. IHIT says the circumstances and information obtained in the investigation support this was a targeted shooting, but there is still little information known about who is responsible.

Anyone with information regarding this homicide is asked to contact the IHIT tip line by calling 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by emailing ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. If you wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip on their website at Solvecrime.ca.
