Police have charged a man with murder in connection with a shooting death in Chestermere, Alta., more than two years ago and released security camera images as they continue to search for more suspects.

Dennis Lewis, 41, was found in his home in Chestermere, just east of Calgary, on Nov. 26, 2018, suffering from a gunshot wound. He later died in hospital.

After a lengthy investigation, the RCMP major crimes unit charged Richard Michael Sikora, 37, of Calgary with second-degree murder.

RCMP released video footage and still images of additional suspects who were seen in the area at the time of the killing.

It's believed that a stolen burgundy 2015 Ford Edge Sport was involved in the incident. It was captured on security cameras in the area of the homicide and was later recovered in northeast Calgary.

Sikora remains in custody and is set to appear in Airdrie provincial court on April 8.
