(NECN) - Authorities are asking for your help in solving the murder of a skateboard shop owner in Malden, Mass.

The fatal shooting took place on January 29 at Patriot Skateboards at 804 Main Street.

The Middlesex County DA's office released surveillance video in an attempt to identify two male suspects. Authorities ask public’s attention to be drawn, in particular, to the size of the suspects, their facial and bodily appearances, their gate and the clothing that they are wearing.

The two appear to be dark skinned males, wearing dark clothing, one of whom was armed with a handgun.  One of those suspects is reported to be approximately more than 6 feet tall, the other between approximately 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall.

Authorities say the two got into a confrontation with shop owner Shawn Clark last month.

Clark was then shot; he died a short time later. No one has been charged at this time.
     
Members of the public with information that they believe may be helpful to the investigation can contact Massachusetts State Police at 781-897-6600 or Malden Police at (781) 397-7171.
