"There was a subsequent gunshot that went through the window that hit the male, went through his chest, through his back," said Lt. Anthony Buchanico.
Police have able to find surveillance video that is proving helpful, and they are now looking for two persons of interest. They say the weapon used was a 40 caliber handgun.
