Rahimi, 34, was shot multiple times outside the Real Canadian Superstore in North Vancouver, about five kilometers away from where the car was found.
Investigators said he was targeted, was known to police and had gang affiliations.
Police said after the homicide, the suspect car fled north on Seymour Boulevard and then turned westbound onto Mount Seymour Parkway.
Investigators are looking to speak with anyone who may have seen the two suspects.
