Kyevon Diates Frazzell Gayles, 35, passed away at WakeMed on Monday.
Garner police said this case is their top priority. Police told ABC11 that they do have a person of interest in the case.
Immediately after the shooting, police said they were looking for a black male seen leaving the area. He was described as approximately 6 feet tall, average build, wearing a white ball cap with black brim, white T-shirt, and black shorts. He had a goatee and dark complexion.
Police were also looking for a white Nissan Altima or Maxima sedan seen leaving the area after the shooting. The vehicle is described as a newer model Nissan with no known after-market accessories.
Even though they have a person of interest, police are still asking anyone with information to contact them at (919) 772-8810.
Gayles was from Jacksonville. Police say they're not sure if he even declared residency in Wake County before he was shot.
