The B.C. man who was shot to death during an attempted break-in at his Surrey home died protecting his family, according to his wife.
Becky Zhou said her husband yelled that the suspect had a gun and told his family to hide before trying to hold the door shut. He was able to lead the man outside, giving the family time to hide, she said.
"[The] very best husband a person could ever ask for," Zhou wrote. She added that everyone else in the family was unharmed. Hill and Zhou have two children.
"This was a tragic and truly senseless act that has no rationale," Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy said at a news conference Monday. "I’m still angry at this pointless loss of life."
Khouri Lamar Green, 22, has been charged with second-degree murder. He allegedly fled the Surrey home in a stolen vehicle and was arrested in Burnaby several hours later, trying to break into another home.
Green, an aspiring rapper, has a record of break-and-enter related offences, reported CBC News. He was on probation when he was arrested on Sunday.
