Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying the shooter. They believe a second person may have had a gun and returned fire on the shooter based on the shell casings' location, the Associated Press reported. 

"We know that many people were out here," Harrison said. "It is only with the community's help that we will be able to identify those responsible."
