Edmonton, Alberta – Homicide Detectives continue to investigate the death of a man who was shot in the Brintnell neighbourhood in the early morning hours of June 13, 2020.

Detectives are asking citizens who may have any dash cam footage from the area between 8 p.m. on June 12 until 1:30 a.m. on June 13. The shooting occurred at approximately 12:30 a.m. on June 13.

“We have information that the vehicle and suspect(s) may have been circulating between 167 Avenue, Manning Drive and Brintnell Blvd.,” says Det. Jared Buhler of Homicide Section.
