Did the Police offer no identifying characteristics of a suspect they are looking for?
They usually don't mind public help in locating him/her/them.......

Perhaps the survivor will be able to provide a description of the shooter. No info yet on the condition of the remaining victim.

This story states two victims but the others say just one. Which is it?
