South Detective Division identified Jhileel Burton, 18, of the 1400 block of Marston Street, as the gunmen in a May shooting outside of a neighborhood bar, but have yet to locate him.

Police are asking for the public’s help, via tips, to locate the man police consider armed and dangerous.

Burton allegedly stopped to talk to a 28-year-old woman, whom he knew from the neighborhood, as she was walking to her vehicle on the 1400 block of South 26th Street at 1:47 a.m. May 19, according to police. During the interaction, Burton allegedly pulled a gun on the woman, who had just left Bailey Place, 1500 S. Bailey St., and fired several shots as she drove away, wounding her once in the right shoulder. She suffered broken bones and nerve damage.

Burton is described as black with a light complexion, 6-foot-2, 135 pounds and having black hair, brown eyes and tattoos on his face and neck.

“They Still couldn't find this crackhead. I'm guessing he might be hiding in a crack house or staying with his homosexual thug crack head house.”
