    1 of 6 2 of 6

      After two previous calls for tips about a murder suspect at large, a reward has been posted for information that may lead to his arrest.

      At 2:10 a.m. on October 23, 2017, RCMP received a report about gunfire in the 14300 block of Crescent Road in Surrey.

      Upon arrival, officers found a male victim suffering from gunshot wounds. He was taken to hospital but later died. He was identified as 28-year-old Nicholas Khabra of Surrey.

      A second call to police was made by a female victim who had also been shot. She was located, not far away from the first victim, on Highway 99 at exit 10. She was also taken to hospital for treatment and survived her injuries. Her name was not released.

      Khabra and the female victim are known to each other and were together at the time of the shooting.

      Investigators believe the shooting was targeted.

      Brandon Nathan Teixeira

      On September 6, 2018, 27-year-old Brandon Nathan Teixeira was charged with first-degree murder and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

      The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team had previously issued calls for public assistance in locating him on September 6 and 14.

      However, Teixeira remains at large and is believed to be somewhere in the Lower Mainland. He may also be in Edmonton and Calgary, as investigators learned that he has associates there.

      He is described as a Caucasian male who is 178 centimetres (five-feet, 10-inches) tall and weighs 73 kilograms (161 pounds) with brown eyes and brown hair. He has a snake tattoo on the left side of his chest and a sleeve tattoo on his left arm.

      Police also released two surveillance videos of Teixeira at a liquor store.

      Investigators state that he is believed to be extremely violent and is considered armed and dangerous, and poses a threat to community safety.

      Anyone who sees him should call 911 immediately.

      Crime Stoppers is now offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to his arrest. Anonymous tips can be made to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online.
