Police on Friday released video believed connected to the fatal shooting. The video shows two people fleeing from a white Dodge Durango in a parkade. It’s believed to be the same vehicle that was found torched several hours after the shooting.
Police said the shooting appeared to be targeted, although Kumar did not have any obvious connections to a criminal lifestyle.
Vancouver police said Friday they believe there are people out there who know who is behind the homicide.
“We encourage those with knowledge of the suspects to come forward,” police spokesperson Const. Tania Visintin said.
