WOBURN—Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and other authorities are requesting assistance from the public on the anniversary date of the murder of a store owner in Malden on January 29, 2013.
It has been three years since the shooting death of Shawn Clark at Patriot Skateboards at 804 Main Street in Malden. Since the incident occurred, Malden Police and Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office have devoted many resources and hours to investigating the circumstances of Clark’s death. Authorities have made some progress, but no one has been charged in connection with the crime.
“We remain determined to solve this murder,” said Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan. “Members of the public who may have seen or heard something on that day, or since then, may have a useful lead. Our investigators would be grateful for the public’s help in solving this crime in which an innocent man who served our country was gunned down at the store he owned.”
As the anniversary of Clark’s death is being recognized, the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office is once again releasing video surveillance from the store from the day the murder occurred in an effort to identify two suspects who were involved in the incident. The video can be viewed here. Please note in particular the facial and bodily appearances of the suspects and the clothing that they are wearing.
Based on the video surveillance inside the store and witness interviews, it is believed that two males entered the store shortly after 12:30 p.m., on January 29, 2013 and a confrontation ensued with Shawn Clark, the proprietor. Clark was shot multiple times by one of the two males. Both males then fled the scene.
The Massachusetts State Police and Malden Police Department are actively investigating the case and pursuing leads.
Members of the public with information that they believe may be helpful to the investigation may contact Massachusetts State Police at (781) 897-6600 or Malden Police at (781) 397-7171.
The prosecutors assigned to this case are Assistant District Attorneys Michael Pelgro and Chris Tarrant. The Victim Witness Advocate is Danielle DeMeo.
