Police are looking for “armed and dangerous” man wanted in connection with a domestic shooting last Saturday that left Adarrius Thompson dead and his mother critically injured.

A warrant has been issued for Keith Martin, 47, for the July 12 shooting in the 6200 block of South Rockwell Street, police said.

Martin allegedly got into an argument with Thompson and his 50-year-old mother at their home about 1:15 a.m. July 12, authorities said. Martin then left, but came back with a gun and shot them both, police said.

Thompson, 27, was shot in the chest and died at the scene, authorities said. His mother was also shot in the chest and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition, authorities said.

Martin is believed to be armed and dangerous, police said. He was last seen driving a Gray 2002 Ford F-150 with Illinois license plate 1220475B. The truck bed is fitted with a distinctive tool box.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911.
