Forest Park police are searching for a man suspected in a deadly shooting Sunday evening.

Investigators released a photo of 21-year-old Gilberto Eugene Teran, who remains at large after he fled the scene of the shooting, Forest Park police spokesman Sgt.

He is considered armed and dangerous.

Police responded to the shooting just before 6 p.m. Sunday in the 4800 block of Mitchell Street, Zackery said. At the scene, they found 30-year-old Adan Bautista-Lopez, of Forest Park, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
