In the video, he’s seen wearing a dark blue shirt and a baseball cap, and is walking his bike into the store.
Police believe he’s the cyclist who shot a 28-year-old woman in the back at 212 N. Milwaukee Av just before noon on Wednesday, as she was on her way to lunch.
Investigators earlier released other surveillance video and pictures of the suspect, showing him riding the bike he apparently was riding when he shot the woman.
Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said the woman was walking with two acquaintances when the lone gunman on a pulled up on his bike, extended his arm, and fired a single shot. The gunman passed by a group of other people and went directly to the woman, Johnson said.
