Chicago police have released surveillance images of the gunman who shot and killed a Greyhound bus employee outside the company’s West Loop terminal on Monday morning.
CPD said the man seen in the images arrived on a bus from Minneapolis and waited for the victim to arrive. After killing the victim, he changed clothes inside the bus station and escaped, according to Chicago police. The Cook County medical examiner identified the victim as Duwon Gaddis, 30, of Palos Hills.
CPD said the killer has a beard, stands 5’10” to 6 feet tall, and weighs 200 to 225 pounds.
He wore a baseball hat, blue mask, gray hoodie, blue track pants with stripes on each leg, and Croc-style shoes before the murder. A backpack he was carrying has been recovered, police said.
After the murder, he changed into a black reebok hoodie and a black balaclava.
He was last seen heading north on Jefferson Street with a piece of luggage.
Gaddis parked his vehicle in front of the terminal at 630 West Harrison around 11:18 a.m. and began to make his way toward the station, CPD Dep. Chief Jill Stevens said during a Monday afternoon press conference.
As he walked toward the station, the gunman approached and began shooting, striking Gaddis multiple times, Stevens said. He succumbed to his wounds at Stroger Hospital.
Police initially said Gaddis and the gunman were in a “verbal altercation” before the shooting, but Stevens told reporters during a press conference that police did not believe any words were exchanged.
She said the gunman “walked right toward” Gaddis and opened fire.
Information about the crime can be shared with Area Three detectives Leavitt and Taglieri at 312-744-8261. The case number is JF-447120.
