His father said his son was heading to work before the shooting occurred. A preliminary investigation indicates a confrontation between the suspect and the victim before the shooting, officials said.

During the initial investigation, a man who matched the suspect description was found in the area of Walnut Avenue and 10th Street, which led to a foot pursuit.

A SWAT team was called to assist at the scene and officers set up a perimeter after the suspect fled. The search concluded as of 6 a.m., and the suspect was not found at the residence.

Evacuated residents were able to return to their homes shortly after 6:30 a.m.
