Canada wide warrant issued for double murder suspect

Thirty three year old Aaron David Douglas is considered armed and dangerous.

Thirty three year old Aaron Douglas is the subject of a Canada wide arrest warrant in connection with last week's double murder.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has issued a Canada-wide arrest warrant for Aaron David Douglas, who’s wanted in connection with last Thursday’s double-murder in Chilliwack.

Douglas has a criminal record dating back to 1996 and police describe him as armed and dangerous.

The 33 year old has been identified as a suspect in the death of 38 year old Richard Blackmon and 36 year old Tyler Belcourt, victims of what police called a targeted shooting.

A third person, a female, escaped with her life and her identity has not been revealed.

Neighbours in the area of Hawthorne Manor (near the corner of Gore Avenue and Nowell Street) heard several shots fired around 4 a.m., then saw a white Mazda hatchback speed away.

IHIT is asking the public to be vigilant and call 911 if you know the whereabouts of Aaron Douglas,” said IHIT sergeant Jennifer Pound. “Do not approach him or attempt to apprehend him yourself.”

According to reports, Douglas was released from police custody just last month after an unrelated attempted murder charge was dropped. Douglas took a plea deal on a weapons charge in exchange for having the larger charge stayed, and was sentenced to time served (19 months) plus three years probation.

He was also ordered to have no contact with the victim in that case, Jeff Karpes.
