State Police Units Assisting in JC Homicide Investigation
Johnson City police detectives are receiving help from New York State Police investigators in the effort to find the man who killed a village restaurant owner.
Police Chief Brent Dodge said "a lot of manpower" is being employed in the effort to determine who shot Shakeel Khan as he closed his Riverside Drive business Saturday night.
Dodge said the state police major crimes unit, along with its computer crimes and forensic investigators are providing assistance.
The police chief said detectives are running down all leads in connection with the deal of the 50-year-old Khan, who owned the Halal Bites restaurant.
Dodge said detectives have "not narrowed in on a particular suspect." He did not discuss a possible motive in the shooting.
Khan, his wife and three children moved from Brooklyn to Johnson City about a year ago.
