Who murdered Lester J. Adams, a husband, father, and son, and why?

Lester was leaving the Big Man's Lounge around 8:30 pm, along with several other people that night. They noticed a man sitting on nearby steps, and as they exited the bar, the man started shooting at them.

Lester was hit multiple times and was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening conditions. He died around 3:50 am on Monday.

Approximately one week later, the authorities captured an image of the suspect from a nearby surveillance camera and released it to the public for help in hopes of identifying him. The suspect was described as wearing white pants and a light-colored polo shirt. He was wearing a baseball cap and sneakers that were navy, blue, aqua green, white, and orange, similar to the color pattern of the Miami Dolphins football team. Per investigators, the only suspect in the case is the unknown individual captured in the image. However, they do not have a motive for the shooting.
