CRIME WATCH FOLLOWUP: ‘Halloween shooter’ not identified yet

The case of the “Halloween shooter” remains unsolved, and the victim asked us to republish the photo in another attempt to see if someone can identify him:

We first reported on the case in early November. It happened on 34th SW in Sunrise Heights; the victim and a neighbor spotted the man prowling their street and called 911 while the man was walking away. An hour later, he was back again, this time with a gun in his hand. The victim yelled at him – then, he says, his wife opened the door of their home, thinking her husband was in trouble, and the man fired at her. Bullets were found lodged in their house, and a casing and unspent bullet outside their house.

The victim tells WSB, “We met with the detective researching the case just prior to Christmas and he thought it would be helpful to see if the story could be posted again since 1) the shooter has yet to be identified and 2) the original story did generate a lot of tips. Any tips should be sent to the detective at and the incident number should be referenced — 21-290133.”

    Does he have a prosthetic left foot? It kind of appears that way in the video and image.

      Totally agree!! I did a double take and zoomed in. Very odd shot if that isn’t someone with a prosthetic.

        I watched the video again on a larger screen. I think that he is wearing standard shoes and that video compression artifacts were the reason that his left foot looked unusual. This is made clearer in the frames where he is walking away from the garage.

    If you check the video from the previous article, his shoes appear to have reflective stripes which makes his foot look odd in the still shot.

    Scary character. Need to work this case like Harrison Ford in The Fugitive.

      You do know Harrison Ford’s character was innocent, right?

      Definitely!  Who should we frame for the shooting and then have escape from custody to track down the real killer all while being chased by Tommy Lee Jones, though?

Sorry, comment time is over.
