Police on Monday released surveillance video of someone wanted for fatally shooting a 23-year-old man last year in the South Shore neighborhood.

He allegedly shot and killed Joesph Wright on Dec. 30, 2019, in the 2100 block of East 69th Street, according to Chicago police.

The video shows two people exit a white car and run down a street while one of them, masked and holding a gun, runs past a security camera.

Wright was shot multiple times to his body about 11:30 a.m. and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Another man, 45, was struck in the shoulder and was listed in good condition at the same hospital, police said.

Police asked anyone with tips to call Detective Castenada at 312-747-8380.
