The victim said the suspect exited the vehicle and walked to the trunk of the car and stood there for a few seconds before running in the middle of the street, east towards 22nd Street before running back toward the victim and firing two more shots in his direction. The victim described the suspect as wearing a ski mask and a sweater or fleece jacket, tan or yellow in color.
