A B.C. man wanted in a 2017 Surrey murder has been arrested in California.

Brandon Nathan Teixeira, who is charged in the October 2017 murder of Nicholas Khabra, was picked up Sunday at a residence in Oroville, 105 kilometres north of Sacramento.

Teixeira was described by police as “extremely violent” and likely to be armed. The public was told to not approach him.

Khabra was gunned down on Oct. 23, 2017 outside a residence in the 14300-block of Crescent Road. He later died in hospital.

Teixeira has a criminal record that includes a 2016 conviction for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking. He also has outstanding charges from 2016 for aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and uttering threats.

Khabra also had a criminal history.

In 2011, he was arrested by the gang task force and charged with a number of firearms offences. Within days, those charges were withdrawn.

Two years earlier in 2009, he was handed a six-month conditional sentence for dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

In a related civil suit, Khabra was ordered in 2011 to pay the person he struck $205,000, according to records of the case obtained by Postmedia.
