NORWALK - Norwalk police say they have been looking for a dark-colored Jeep Grand Cherokee, which they believe is the getaway car used after Saturday's gas station shooting.

Authorities say a Jeep was parked on West Avenue during the Shell station robbery that left 32-year-old Juan Joaquin Morales dead. The Jeep made a U-turn and headed toward I-95 after the robbery, police say.

The medical examiner announced Wednesday that Morales died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Norwalk Mayor Dick Moccia says this is the city's first murder in more than a year.
