At the time, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team described the attack as a targeted hit, and said video appeared to show a suspect fleeing the scene and getting into another man’s car.

In his haste to escape, one of the suspects was nearly struck by a car as he ran across Fraser Highway.

Police later found a silver sedan on fire near Willingdon Avenue and Kemp Street in Burnaby, believed to be the getaway car.

Investigators said Coric was known to police.

Carlos Nathaniel Monteith, 25, was charged Friday with first-degree murder, police said. Trion Demario Castello, 32, has also been charged with accessory after the fact.

Police said they believe other people complicit in the attack may still be at large.
