One video being shared on social media appears to show the suspect walking down the street after the shooting. The video was allegedly taken over an hour ago.

The video’s accuracy is currently unconfirmed, but the individual in the video matches the description released by law enforcement.


The suspect is still at large.

This is a developing story.
