Vehicle seized in connection with homicide
Edmonton police they have seized a vehicle in their investigation of a shooting that left a 33-year-old man dead in an alley Monday afternoon.
"I believe it was [seized] last night," said police spokeswoman Patrycia Thenu.
Dale Maloney, 33, died after he was shot several times in the abdomen behind Joey's Restaurant just west of downtown Edmonton on Monday afternoon.
Witnesses reported an argument before the shooting and saw two men fleeing in an SUV after the shooting.
Thenu wouldn’t say if that was the vehicle police seized, or where it was taken from, because it was under surveillance at the time.
Maloney, who was originally from Newfoundland, was described as a kind man with a "big, big heart" by family.
Friends set up a memorial with flowers and photos of Maloney taped to the trunk of a tree near the site of the shooting.
"Dale: you will be missed. Your friends & family love you," was written beside the photos.
Thenu says that no arrests have been made and police are still investigating.
She says the case is unique because police believe Maloney didn’t know the people who attacked him.
"There’s nothing to indicate that the victim knew his assailant or assailants," she said. "So they’re very concerns, and frankly, outraged that someone would do something like this."
