EDMONTON -- Police have identified a person of interest in connection with the death of a man who was fatally shot in a Chinatown alley earlier this month.

Kirk Dallas Powder Taylor, 42, was found in an alley near 106A Avenue and 97 Street on Monday, March 9, just before 5 p.m.

He died in hospital a short while later.

His death was deemed a homicide. Investigators have been searching for surveillance or CCTV footage of the alley where it happened.

On Monday, they released an image of a person carrying a backpack near the alley around the same time Taylor was shot.

The person appears to be wearing a black baseball cap and black sweater with a white logo on it, as well as black pants.
