Police release new traffic camera videos of suspect vehicle
After a news conference on Friday, the Plymouth Police Department released new videos showing the vehicle investigators are trying to find after Tuesday's shooting.
Traffic camera videos show the vehicle before Tuesday night's shooting. Officers also released a map showing the vehicle's timing and path leading up to the shooting.
After reviewing the traffic cameras, police say they believe the driver got onto I-694 from Snelling Avenue in Arden Hills at about 9:46 p.m. on Tuesday and traveled west exiting onto Highway 169 before the shooting just after 10 p.m.
Police are asking any drivers that have dashcams to review and were on I-694 or Highway 169 on Tuesday night to review their video.
"I know that many drivers, many of us have a personal dashcam, dashboard cameras in their vehicles," said Plymouth Police Chief Erik Fadden. "Many commercial trucking companies utilize them as just a part of their routine business operations. I want to ask anyone or any businesses that have that may have a dash camera installed in their vehicle in that they may have been in the area of I-694 or Highway 169 on Tuesday night between 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. to take a few minutes to review that footage and hopefully you may find something that could help us with this investigation."
Family begs for anyone with information on the shooting to come forward
During Friday's news conference, Boughton's family also spoke and begged anyone with information on the case to call police.
"The world on Tuesday lost a truly wonderful human being," said Boughton's brother-in-law Stephen Robinson.
The family says Boughton was on his way home from coaching his son's baseball team when he was senselessly gunned down. Police say they are still working to determine what led up to Boughton being shot.
"He was murdered," explained Robinson. "Executed for doing something most of us do every day. Taking your child to an athletic event, a sporting event."
"We do these things every day," added Robinson. "This is the world we live in... Is this the world we want to pass to our children?"
