The shooting took place at around 3pm local time in the international departure area of the airport, according to the Integrated Assassination Investigation Team (IHIT) Charget. Said Frank Zhang.
“A 28-year-old man was shot and wounded,” Zhang told a news conference Sunday. “This person is known to the police. We believe that this shooting is related to the gang conflict we have witnessed throughout the region.”
Zhang told reporters that after the shooting was over, an SUV with at least two people left from inside.
The vehicle was found about 17 miles from the scene of the shooting – and the vehicle was burned in 9700 blocks of Princess Drive.
IHID requests them to be contacted on the way from the airport to the area where the vehicle was found, especially if they may have a dashcam video.
Zhang said IHID would work with airport crews to access all surveillance games.
The investigation is ongoing.
“There’s a lot of work ahead,” he said. “When it comes to murder investigations, we will not leave any stone unturned.”
