Suspect vehicle information

Police have determined the suspects drove a vehicle to the scene and left in it after stealing and setting the homeowner's vehicle on fire. Previous releases said the suspects stole the homeowner's vehicle and left the scene. The stolen vehicle was found abandoned on a nearby grid road, on fire.

Police do not have more information on the vehicle the suspects were driving. Investigators say the vehicle travelled "east and west of the intersection of Highways #637 and #9 after the homicide occurred."

Items stolen from residence; ongoing investigation

Police say three long-barrelled firearms and a significant amount of ammo was stolen from the victim's residence. The items had been stored properly prior to being taken.

Police are still investigating the specifics of the homicide.
