DIEPPE -- The RCMP is asking for the public’s help in tracking down a suspect after two men were shot outside a strip club in Dieppe, N.B. last week.
The RCMP responded to the parking lot of Angie’s Show Palace on Champlain Street around 2:10 a.m. on Oct. 9.
When they arrived, officers found a 32-year-old man and a 25-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds. They were both taken to hospital for treatment.
The suspect had fled the scene before police arrived.
Police say a warrant has been issued for 25-year-old Olivier Tumba, who is facing charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault in connection with the shooting.
Tumba is described as five-foot-nine inches tall and 140 pounds. He has dark hair, brown eyes, and a tattoo on his right forearm that says "F.O.A We may not have it all together but together we have it all."
Police say anyone who sees Tumba should call 911 immediately. They also warn that he should not be approached.
Anyone with information about the shooting or Tumba’s whereabouts is asked to contact the RCMP.
Meanwhile, Angie's owner Rudy Gillespie says security footage from outside of his nightclub has been turned over to police. He says it shows the accused outside the club on the night of the shooting, adding the man was never inside.
"I never really interviewed my staff to say, 'hey is this guy a regular customer?' but I'm sure they would have said something," Gillespie said. "They would have said he's a regular customer, they would have let me know, 'hey this is a guy who comes in all the time', but I didn't hear anything about that."
Gillespie says his business has suffered in the days since the incident took place and he is now planning to install more security measures.
"Nothing happened within the vicinity of the building," Gillespie said. "But something like this sort of says 'OK, maybe we should go the extra step,' so now we're spending more money on our video surveillance and updating our metal detector systems."
