LAUDERHILL (CBSMiami) – Lauderhill Police say they need the public’s help to find the gunmen who shot and killed a Fort Lauderdale man outside a busy shopping plaza last week.

Police released new surveillance video of the shooting and two people — who police believe — know the identities of at least one of the shooters.

Last week — on June 27 — Conrad Luke was walking in a shopping plaza in the 1600 block of U.S. 441. It was in the evening.

The surveillance video shows a murder at point blank range.

The video shows a man in a white shirt pulling out a gun and opening fire on Luke.

The video shows Luke running away.

The gunman pursues Luke while continuing to fire. As the incident unfolds, another man shoots at Luke.

A short time later, Conrad Luke was pronounced dead on the scene.

Lauderhill Police wants to identify the two shooters. Both men are believed to still be on the streets.

Police also say the video shows a man and woman who were seen talking to the main shooter before the murder went down.

“They were having a conversation with (the shooter) prior to the shooting,” said Lauderhill Police Captain Constance Stanley. “We want to identify those folks.”

Detectives have a bunch of questions for the man and woman.

As for what led to the shooting, police say they’re not sure.

The victim’s family told CBS 4 last week that they believe the shooting stemmed from an argument over a bike.

“I’m devastated,” said Karen Luke. “That’s my only older brother and it’s like he’s gone.”

Conrad Luke did have a troubled past. Prison records show he’d been arrested numerous times and his family said he just got out of prison a few months ago.

Investigators and family members say he did not deserve to die and police want the shooters caught.

“It is pretty brazen,” said Captain Stanley. “Other bystanders could have been injured as a result of this. Obviously the shooter didn’t care. It appears as though he was determined to get the victim.”

If you know who the shooters are or the people that police want to speak with, call Crimestoppers at 954 493 TIPS.
