Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and law enforcement authorities are requesting assistance from the public on the sixth anniversary of the murder of a store owner in Malden on Jan. 29, 2013.

 Shawn Clark was shot six years ago while working at Patriot Skateboards at 804 Main St. in Malden. Since the incident occurred, Malden Police and Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office have continued to investigate the circumstances of Clark’s death. Authorities have made some progress, but no one has been charged in connection with the crime.

 Once again the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office is 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 Jan. 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.

Investigators believe the murder of Shawn Clark can be solved and are hopeful that over the passing of these six years someone who knows something may decide to come forward and speak to detectives. On occasion with other crimes, a citizen has come forward with a small detail which may not appear to have significance to the person but which has opened doors for detectives and sent them along a path that has led to an arrest.

 The Massachusetts State Police and Malden Police Department continue to investigate this shooting and urge 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.
