"Prince George RCMP have received many tips from the public on his potential whereabouts, both within Prince George and surrounding areas," RCMP said in a release. "RCMP officers from Prince George and surrounding communities have aggressively followed up on each of these tips in a 24-7 pursuit of Miller."

Mounties went on to thank the public "for having the courage to provide information on Miller's whereabouts. Without the public's help we would not have been able to apprehend Miller as fast as we have."

Within the hour of police being called to the scene of a targeted shooting during the early morning of Jan. 25, Aaron Ryan Moore, 27, and Joshua Steven West, 33 and by the end of the next day, Perry Andrew Charlie, 24, was also arrested.

A call for the public's help in tracking down Miller was issued Friday.

All four face two counts of first degree murder in the deaths of Thomas Burt Reed, 51, of Burns Lake and David Laurin Franks, 46, of Prince George and one count of attempted murder of a third man, the lone survivor of what police have called a targeted shooting. His name has not been released.

RCMP had been called to a shots fired incident on Foothills Boulevard near North Nechako Drive, where they located a vehicle with the three inside.
