Police are investigating the death of a young man near Lougheed Highway and Austin Road on Thursday night as a homicide.

Burnaby RCMP responded to a call at about 7:30 p.m. to assist a man in cardiac arrest in the area, and first responders located a male on a pathway that was being assisted by a passerby.

The man was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased shortly after his arrival.
