A 17-year old man was arrested after a stabbing outside a Surrey High School.

Background: On November 22, 2022, at approximately 12:08 p.m., the Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a stabbing outside of Tamanawis Secondary School, located in the 12600-block of 66 Avenue, Surrey. Officers arrived within minutes and located an 18-year old man suffering life-threatening injuries. Despite the best efforts of responding officers, the victim sadly succumbed to his injuries shortly thereafter. As a result of the quick action of the Surrey RCMP, a 17-year old who was identified as a suspect by witnesses, was located and taken into custody. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took conduct of the investigation and continue to work closely in partnership with the Surrey RCMP, the RCMP Forensic Identification Service and the BC Coroners Service.

Investigators are identifying the victim, 18-year old Mehakpreet Sethi of Surrey, in an effort to advance their investigation.

At this time, it is believed that the suspect and the victim were known to each other and that this was an isolated incident, not believed to be associated to the Lower Mainland gang conflict.

"We know there were many students in the area around the time this tragedy took place," says Sgt. Timothy Pierotti of IHIT. "If you or one of your loved ones has information that could help shed light on why this young man was killed, please contact IHIT immediately."
