Two people were wounded and one of them, Gary Green, later died from his injuries, police said.

Most of the video shows the getaway vehicle double-parked near the intersection until one man and then another are shown rushing inside and the vehicle then sped away.

Authorities say the first suspect is a light-skinned black man, approximately 5'10” tall, with a stocky build, weighing around 270 to 290 pounds. He is approximately 35 to 40 years old and was dressed in all black on the night of the killing.

The second suspect is also a light- skinned black male, standing approximately 5'10 in height, heavy set weighing about 215 pounds, police said. He is in his late 30s to early 40s, and was wearing a green and white striped shirt at the time of the killing.

Police described their getaway vehicle as a silver or light-colored Kia Soul. The vehicle was driven by third person. Authorities say the suspects may have been attending a Father's Day barbecue that was being held in the area.

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to contact Cease-Fire Detectives Eddie Taylor or Dave Tanis at 973-321-1342.
