Forest Park police released surveillance images Sunday of a man who they say shot another man over a cell phone.
The shooting happened around 2:55 p.m. Saturday, at a 7-11 store at Roosevelt Road and Des Plaines Avenue.
The victim, who had earlier lost his cell phone, arranged to meet a man at the 7-11 who claimed to have found it. But the man who found the phone demanded a reward before he would return it. When the victim refused to pay, the other man pulled out a gun and shot him, police said.
The victim was rushed to Loyola Hospital, where he underwent surgery for a bullet wound to his neck. He remains in critical condition.
Police described the suspected shooter as a black man, 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 2 inches tall. He wore a long, denim shirt and dark jeans with designs or rips in the legs, and dark boots. His hair was either braided or in short curls, and he has a chipped tooth.
A woman who was with the shooter was in her early teens or 20s, also black, and wearing a gray hoodie, dark jeans and white shoes. Police think she has braids in her hair, with bleached tips.
Anyone with information about the shooting should call police at 708-366-2425.
