DeKalb County police say this man chased and killed a young man outside a hotel. He's wanted.

In the picture, the young man sprints in a hotel parking lot, a long rifle in hand, the afternoon sun lighting his face.

DeKalb County police say it was taken during the shooting of Jordan Morris. The 22-year-old Decatur man was found dead last Wednesday with a bullet hole in his left cheek.

The department released the photo to Channel 2 Action News in hopes that someone knows the man.

Morris died outside Super Inn on Wesley Chapel Road, targeted because of an “ongoing dispute,” police told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The nature of the bad blood hasn’t been released.

Surveillance video shows many witnesses at the scene, but few have come forward, Channel 2 reported.
