Police released surveillance video on Thursday that captured most of the gruesome shooting that left a 34-year-old man with critical injuries. Investigators say the suspect, a Black man dressed in a long-sleeved white shirt and long dark pants, gets out of a white Chevy Malibu and opens fire on the 34-year-old victim.

Authorities say the victim, whose identity had not been released, was taken to the hospital in critical condition but managed to survive his injuries.
