The Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Malden Police and State Police are asking for the public's help in identifying suspects seen in surveillance footage during a fatal shooting at the Patriot Skateboards shop last month.
Shawn Clark, the store's owner, was found fatally wounded there on January 29.
Authorities have been quiet about details of the attack; these are the first, few details that have been released to the public since the day of the shooting.
"Authorities ask that the public’s attention be drawn, in particular, to the size of the suspects, their facial and bodily appearances, their gait, and the clothing that they are wearing," the press release reads.
"Authorities are trying to identify two males who are depicted on the video surveillance tapes and still photos taking part in the incident, who appear to be dark skinned males, wearing dark clothing, one of whom was armed with a handgun," it later concludes.
Both men are seen in the footage wearing black jackets and hoods over their faces.
"One of those suspects is reported to be approximately more than 6 feet tall, the other between approximately 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall.
"Following a confrontation between the store owner, Shawn Clark, and the 2 suspects inside the store, the victim was shot multiple times on the sidewalk just outside the front door of the store.
"The suspects fled on foot, down Edmund Street."
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Massachusetts State Police at 781-897-6600 or Malden Police at (781) 397-7171.
