Durham police continue their search for a man they believe opened fire outside a grocery store during rush hour.

One person was shot at the Los Primos Supermarket on East Main Street in a car-to-car shooting Monday afternoon.

Thirty-four-year-old Christopher Eugene Hill is still on the loose, and ABC11 has uncovered a rap sheet dating as far back as 1995 for the alleged gunman. After nearly 10 years in prison, Hill was paroled on second-degree murder and drug charges two years ago.

Police said he fled the scene of the Monday shooting in a red pickup truck, but returned later to pick up shell casings from his gun. Police have not said if he was caught on store surveillance cameras.

Hill is wanted on one charge of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The shooting victim was found a short time later in the 600 block of East Main Street. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

Anyone with information on Hill's whereabouts is asked to call police at (919) 560-4281, ext. 29118 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200.
