Wednesday, officers started following leads hoping to track him down. Police said they believe the shooter has been in trouble with the law before.
"You and I have family nicknames, they're probably not in the police system or not in police records, so, yeah, he probably has a criminal past of some type," Officer Adam Ashley said.
