Chicago Police have released a surveillance photo of a person suspected in a Little Village homicide that occurred earlier this month, asking the public for help in identifying them.

Police did not specify what role the person played in the shooting, but added that they drove off in a late model red or maroon GMC Terrain SUV.

The shooting happened about 8:35 a.m. on Nov. 1 in the 4100 block of West 31st Street, according to Chicago Police.

Eric T. Jones, 23, was walking down the street when a male with a weapon fired shots in his direction, then took off in a red SUV, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Jones, of the 0-100 block of Hickory Trace Drive in southwest suburban Justice, was shot in the chest and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:33 a.m., authorities said.
