Charges have been laid in a gang-related shooting in Richmond last August, but one of the suspects is believed to have already fled to the Middle East.
Cst. Jordan McLellan with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit says Thomas Duong, 20, of Richmond, and Sahand Askari, 31, of Burnaby are facing attempted murder charges.
McLennan admits investigators don’t know where Askari is.
“Canada-wide warrants have been issued for his arrest, so if he does step foot back into Canada, he will be arrested immediately.”
