Sandaker is now wanted on warrants for second-degree murder, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and two counts of breach of recognizance.

He is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 5’9″ tall, and weighs 160 pounds. He has a thin to average build with hazel eyes and light brown hair. While the supplied picture shows Sandaker with long hair, police believe he may have since cut his hair short.

The suspect was last seen in north Edmonton. Police say Sandaker should be considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached.

The EPS continues to investigate, but says the shooting does not appear to be random. Police are not looking for any other suspects at this time.

Anyone with information on Sandaker is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online.
