Tinley Park police released a sketch today of the gunman who killed five women in a botched clothing store robbery. The gunman is described in a statement from the Tinley Park Police:

He is a male African American, approximately 5’10” tall, he is described as being large framed, but with his weight proportionate to his size. He is roughly between 25 and 35 years of age, with a medium complexion. He has a receding hairline with 3 to 5 corn rows of hair from the front to the back of his head. These rows are described as being “puffy.” There was one braid of hair hanging down over the right side of his face, with four light green beads in the braid. At the time the crime was committed, he was clean shaven, wearing black jeans with some type of rhinestone-type embroidery on the back pocket. He also wore a charcoal gray knit cap, and a black jacket that went below the waist. Again, it is quite possible the appearance of this criminal has changed since last Saturday.

Anyone with information should call the tip hotline: 708-444-5394.
