“We’re asking anyone who was in the area at the time of this shooting and may have seen or heard something, even if they don’t feel like it’s significant, to give us a call,” said Detective Sergeant Claude Picard with the Major Crimes Division. “Something that might seem unimportant could be the missing piece detectives need to make an arrest in this case.”
