Two more men were arrested on Wednesday in connection with a deadly Calgary shooting that happened more than a decade ago.

Allan Teather, 22, was killed while he was in a condo complex parkade in the 100 block of Village Heights S.W. on Jan. 8, 2008. Police have said they believe the homicide was targeted and motivated by money.

On Sept. 4, 2019, police said new evidence linked two men from Calgary to Teather’s death, bringing the total number of people who have been arrested — at some point — in this case to four. The latest people to be arrested are still being interviewed and investigators said they won’t release their names or details about their alleged involvement in the killing until they’re formally charged.
