VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Police have released surveillance images of a woman considered armed and dangerous who is wanted for the shooting death of a man at a Vancouver business.

The body of 58-year-old Bentley Brookes was discovered at Pacific Bullion Precious Metals, 701 Main St., on Wednesday morning. Police said Brookes was an employee of the store.

Investigators said he was shot and killed.

On Friday, the Vancouver Police Department Major Crimes Unit released surveillance images of the suspect. Detectives asked for the public's help in identifying her.

Police said the woman should be considered armed and dangerous.

No other details, including a possible motive for the deadly shooting, have been released by police.

A woman who worked nearby told Fox 12 Brookes was a good man and hard worker, who spoke often about his wife and kids and loved them very much.

His wife posted online Friday: "Thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and blessings. We who loved him the most thank you.  Words cannot express the depth of our sorrow and your words are a great comfort."

Brookes' children have set up a memorial fund to help with expenses at https://www.gofundme.com/prc5wzjz.

Anyone with information about the woman in the surveillance images is asked to contact the Vancouver Police Department tip line at 360-487-7399 or email Lawrence.Zapata@cityofvancouver.us.
