A man was found dead at a Petro Canada gas station on Highway 28 in Cold Lake early Sunday morning.

Police were called to the gas station around 1 a.m. after a report that a man had been shot.

Four people reportedly left the area in a stolen 2018 black Nissan Murano with Alberta plate BRW 5433, which was last seen on Cold Lake First Nations Sunday morning.

The SUV has tinted windows and a dent in the back.

Anyone who has seen the SUV or has information is asked to call Cold Lake RCMP at 780-594-3302.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Thursday in Edmonton.
