Updated news release issued on December 29, 2019
We have reason to believe there may have been at least one other altercation on Christmas Eve in the area of Trunk Road and Duncan Street involving the two persons of interest and an unknown person or people, states Sgt. Trevor Busch.
We strongly urge those people to come forward immediately as they may have vital information to our ongoing investigation.
Person of interest #1 is described as possibly a Caucasian male, seen wearing a black or dark coloured hoodie with a logo on the left chest and a horizontal pattern on the right arm, a pair of dark coloured pants with a horizontal pattern on the legs, and a pair of dark coloured or black shoes.
Person of interest #2 is described as a male, wearing a black or dark coloured hoodie, a pair of dark pants with a thick, white, vertical stripe on the leg, and a pair of dark shoes.
Once again, police are urging anyone with information to come forward or call the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit information line at 250-380-6211.
We are particularly interested in speaking with people who were in the area of Trunk Road and Duncan Street or Canada Avenue between 10:30 and 11:00 p.m. on the night of December 24, 2019 including those who may have dash cam footage or other video surveillance.
The families of the victims request that their privacy be respected during this difficult time.
