The shooter remains at-large and is described as a black man with long braids, muscular build and a goatee who was wearing a black shirt and pants. No description of any vehicle has been given.
Police did not immediately release the identity of the man killed, and say the crime scene from the shooting is extensive, spanning several city blocks and would be a crime scene for the foreseeable future. Residents in the neighborhood have been asked to remain in their homes while police investigate the area.
The city’s Shotspotter system first relayed the message of a shooting in the area and immediately thereafter the Captain, off-duty at the time, relayed that he had interrupted a shooting in progress.
