The victim who survived the shooting ran to the 20000 block of Mitchell, about a third of a mile north and east of the shooting scene, after being wounded, according to authorities.

Police said the suspect is a man about six feet tall, weighing about 180 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the word "Nike" on the back, black jogging pants and black shoes.

Police say this is the vehicle the shooting suspect used to escape the scene.
