The detective investigating the shooting said the suspect was walking behind another man after he left a store. The man told police he heard a suspicious sound behind him and when he turned briefly to look, the suspect began firing shots.

The suspect is described as a tall, thin black male, about 25 years old and about six feet tall, wearing a dark green hooded sweater at the time.
