Police continue to seek information on the whereabouts of an alleged Grays Ferry gunman.
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.

During the interaction, Burton allegedly pulled a gun on the woman, who had just left Bailey Place, 1500 S.
