While the victim was being transported to the hospital, he implied a male and female were involved in the incident. Additionally, witnesses described two individuals leaving the victims residence around the time of the shooting and indicate they left the apartment complex in a white 4-door car. Detectives are looking to identify and contact the male and female to determine if they have any information about the shooting.

The male is of unknown race, around 25 years-old, 5’10” – 5’11” tall, 160 – 170lbs. He wore a red baseball cap with a black rim and a red and black jacket.

The female is described as white, mid-twenties, around 5’05” tall, 110lbs with long hair.
