Police confirmed the suspect had died after being hunted for hours.
Quoted from the Channel News Asia page, Wednesday (25/1/2023), two victims were shot inside a shop which the authorities considered looked like a random act of violence.
The third victim was shot outside the shop.
“This appears to be a random situation, there was no real conflict between them. The man just came in and started shooting,” said Murray.
After opening fire inside the shop, the suspect identified as Jared Haddock ran across the street and fired at a vehicle, forcing the driver to transfer to the passenger seat.
“The suspect stole a car and fled,” police said.
“After hours of manhunt Haddock’s relatives called authorities to a location behind the shed where Haddock was hiding. Shots were heard as police approached and a man who identified himself as Haddock was found injured,” Murray said.
According to Murray, no officers were injured or used any force to immobilize the 21-year-old assailant.
Haddock died of his injuries at the scene.
