Forest Park police said today that they are searching for two people in connection with a Saturday shooting in the village that left a man in critical condition.
The police released photos today from video surveillance cameras at the scene showing the two individuals walking toward the scene of the shooting.
The two are described as:
* An African-American male, 20-30 years old, standing 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 2 inches, with a large build. He was wearing a long blue denim shirt and dark jeans with designs or rips in the legs and dark shoes with some kind of design. Police said his hair and clothing were described as unkempt and that he had a chipped tooth and yellow teeth.
* An African-American female, early teens or twenties, standing 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 5 inches, with a thin build. She was wearing a gray hoodie, dark jeans and white shoes. Police said she wears braids with bleached tips.
If anyone has information about the two, call the Forest Park Police Department at (708) 366-2425.
The shooting incident happened about 2:55 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven store at Roosevelt Road and Des Plaines Avenue in the western suburb. The victim had earlier lost his cell phone, had called his own number, and the person who answered agreed to meet to return the phone, police said.
The two men met outside the store, where the man who had the cell phone demanded money for its return, police said. The phone's owner refused, and the man who had the phone shot the owner in the neck before running away, north on Des Plaines Avenue, police said.
The victim was taken to Loyola University Medical Center, where he is in critical condition today, police said.
