Back on August 8th, 32-year old Kellie Taitt was shot and killed outside her car on Brinkby Avenue.

During the investigation, police received a tip that a man was in the area right before the shooting, around 4:45 a.m. to 5 a.m. that morning.

Police have released a sketch of the person of interest (see right) who's described as a white man in his late 20's to early 30's. He's 5'10" to 6'0" with a medium build. He has curly hair and a scruffy beard and mustache.

He was last seen wearing a light blue and white polo with faded blue jeans.
