If you spot this guy - and let's be honest, it'd be pretty hard not to - you should probably call police. 

According to cops, the man with the glamour (mug) shot is Maurice Jones, 26, who frequents 12th Street near Wagner Avenue and Sharswood Street near 19th.

Police are looking for Jones in connection with the fatal shooting of Charles Tresse on Saturday. Tresse, 35, was shot several times in the chest on 20th Street near Montgomery Avenue around 10:45 p.m. and died shortly thereafter. Police believe the motive was an argument.

Aside from the unusual, um, stuff around his face, Jones should be easy to spot because he's 6-feet-4 and 240 pounds, according to police.

Police don't know the nature of the growths on Jones' face and neck.

"I don’t’ know why he looks like that. I’m trying to figure that out myself," said one source.

The city is offering a $20,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of Jones. If you have any information on his whereabouts, please call police at 215.686.3334/35 or 911.
