Police search dogs were used today to canvass the area for several hours but have not found anyone.

Police say this is a difficult investigation because they don't have a good description of the gunman.

Despite all of the people who were outside La Fabolosa food mart who may have seen the shooting, witnesses are reluctant to give up any information.

Police say the next step in their investigation is to go through local security video to see if they can make any sort of identification on a suspect.
