Man wanted for murder in B.C. may have connections to Edmonton, Calgary
A man who is considered “extremely violent” and is wanted on a first-degree murder charge in B.C. may have connections to Edmonton and Calgary.
Brandon Nathan Teixeira, 27, is accused of fatally shooting 28-year-old Nicholas Khabra on Oct. 23, 2017, near King George Boulevard and Crescent Road in Surrey, B.C.
A woman was also found nearby with bullet wounds. She was taken to hospital in serious condition.
It is believed he may still be in the Lower Mainland but investigators have now learned Teixeira has associates in Edmonton and Calgary and urge residents there to also be on the lookout for him.

Police say he is “extremely violent” and presents a risk to public safety.
Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911, and should not approach him.
Police say the hunt for Teixeria was linked to a heavy police presence in a South Surrey neighbourhood in early September, which police had initially described as a possible training exercise.

“It is imperative that we find him and bring him before the court so that he can be held accountable for his first degree murder charge,” says Cpl. Frank Jang of IHIT in a release. “We remind the community to please call 911 immediately if you see Brandon Teixeira.”
