FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOX) - Ferguson police are looking for a killer.

Assistant Chief Frank McCall Jr. says crews arriving at a home in the 7500 block of Halpin, Saturday morning, found a female shooting victim unconscious inside and a male victim outside, "The male victim was responsive, and he was conveyed to an area hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries. The female victim was pronounced dead on scene."

McCall says they'd like to speak with 26-year-old Darrick Barber about any possible involvement in the shooting deaths, "It was not a random act. But, we do consider Mister Barber armed and dangerous. That's why it's very important that we talk to him."

Barber is described as an acquaintance of the dead woman. Police say he has some distinguishing marks, including a large red star tattoo on his upper chest with the words "Baby" and "Parking" above it.
