A homicide unit of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has issued a description of a suspect in the Aug. 31 attempted murder of Vancouver-area Realtor Franz Prokop, who was shot in the head and left for dead on the grounds of a 19-acre, $1.88 million listing he was representing.

Mounties say they’re looking for a 50-something South Asian man who wears a turban, has a full beard and plump face, and walks with a limp. The man was driving a dark pickup truck.

Police say the shooting was targeted, but have not said more about the motive. Prokop was reportedly involved in a legal dispute over a $3.6 million Lotto ticket, and the property he was showing was once used for a marijuana grow operation and methamphetamine lab. Source: vancouversun.com
