Three people, including two youths, are in custody after a man died following an assault outside a shopping mall in Abbotsford, B.C., on Wednesday.

Police were called to the parking lot of Sevenoaks Shopping Centre on South Fraser Way at about 10:30 p.m. PT, where they found a man with life-threatening injuries.

The man was taken to hospital but died a short time later.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said one adult and two youths are in custody "for their suspected involvement." Police did not release any further details on the arrests.

The victim, 41, was from Abbotsford and did not have any gang connections, IHIT said. His name was not released as police have not finished notifying his next of kin.

Anyone with dashcam footage or CCTV from the area within the 32900-block of South Fraser Way from around 8:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday is asked to contact IHIT.
