Sgt. Jenn Pound, with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, says the airport's local RCMP detachment was involved in apprehending the suspect at around midnight.
Police found a man dead in a Surrey home after a 911 call came in reporting someone had been shot just before 4 p.m. PT.
Police said at the time that "the shooting appears to be domestic."
Police are still seeking a vehicle that might have been used to flee the crime scene, a green 2000 Honda Odyssey van with B.C. licence plate number 390 XHB.
