Investigators learned that the victim was in his car outside of Omar Discount Store when the suspect approached his vehicle. The victim exited his car and got into a physical altercation with the suspect. The suspect pulled out a gun and shot the victim twice before fleeing the scene on foot. 

Officials believe the suspect and the victim know each other. Investigators also learned that the victim was driving a car that was reported stolen during a robbery back in December.
