Calgary police say two more men have been arrested in connection with the 2008 homicide of Allan Teather.

Police said new evidence in the case linked two men from Calgary to the shooting, but that no additional details about the suspects' involvement will be released until charges are laid. 

Investigators are currently interviewing the suspects, police said in a release late Wednesday.

On Aug. 29, investigators in Vancouver arrested a man for his alleged involvement — but he was questioned and released pending further investigation.

First-degree murder charge

These latest arrests come nearly three weeks after police said they had uncovered new evidence in the case and asked to speak with anyone who had contact with Teather in the days leading up to his death. 

One day after that plea, police arrested Brian Cheng, 34, of Calgary, and charged him with one count of first-degree murder. 

Police said Teather was shot and killed on Jan. 9, 2008, in the parkade of a condo in the 100 block of Village Heights S.W. 

They believe the homicide was targeted and financially motivated. 

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service's homicide unit through its tip line at 403-428-8877, the non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
