The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says although it is early in the investigation, and while investigators work to determine the motive for the shooting, it appears the homicide was targeted.
"The selfish act of homicide is one that puts the public at risk, and creates an elevated level of concern for police. For this reason, we need those who have information, to come forward and contact us," said Cpl. Meghan Foster.
