The Sheriff's office said they believe the suspect was driving a grey or silver four-door vehicle.

Authorities don't know the motive of the shooting, but Lendvay told reporters there is a possibility it may be gang-related. He said the auto immediately fled the area and that detectives were checking surveillance video to try to identify the vehicle and locate the occupants.
