The mother of Shawn Clark, a skateboard shop owner killed nearly a year ago in front of his store in Malden, is still looking for answers.

Clark, who was a 39-year-old former Marine, husband and father of two sons, was murdered on Jan. 29, 2013. To date, no arrests have been made in the case. A reward of up to $60,000 reward is being offered for information in the case, according to a WCVB report.

Patriot Skateboard, the former Malden skateboard shop, is now Snider & D'Amato Constables. The constables office, located at 804 Main St., opened in late July 2013.

"It feels very odd to be here -- the very last place that Shawn took his breath," Clark's mother, Anita, told WCVB. "It's very strange."

Surveillance images show two men entering the skateboard shop on Jan. 29, 2013, getting into a confrontation inside before Clark chased the men outside, where he was shot multiple times, according to the report.

"It's not solved which is very bothersome. The people in the video disguised themselves so well. Preparing for the worst. And the worst is what they did," Anita Clark told WCVB.

"...It's extremely frustrating knowing that the perpetrators are still out there. And I would love to see somebody else's family be spared from the trauma we have been through," she added.

The Middlesex County District Attorney's office said it's still an open and active investigation, reads the report.

Readers with information for investigators can contact Massachusetts State Police at 781-897-6600 or Malden Police at 781-397-7171.
