October 18, 2016 - 4:00 PM

LANGLEY, B.C. - Police say a 27-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of a "well-established" member of the Hells Angels in Langley, B.C.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says Jason Wallace was arrested during a road-side stop in Surrey on Monday and that he remains in custody.

IHIT says that while investigators are learning some information about what took place before the homicide that is believed to have been targeted, the motive is unclear.

Police say witnesses are believed to have left the homicide scene on Sunday before officers arrived.

Cpl. Meghan Foster says that despite the quick arrest and charge approval, there is still much work to be done in the investigation.

She says police are continuing to deal with evidence and are encouraging anyone who has any information to come forward.
