GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

One man is dead after being shot in the head in the parking lot of a Gulfport convenience store Sunday evening.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said 19-year-old Raymond Howze III, of Gulfport, died at the scene of the deadly shooting.

Gulfport police Sgt. Damon McDaniel said officers responded to the M&S Convenience store located in the 4600 block of Old Pass Road around 5:45 p.m. 

That is where they found Howze with a gunshot wound to his head. Officers at the scene tell us he was a patron of the store.

Police say they are looking for a suspect described only as a black male standing 5'6" and weighing 150 pounds wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and tan pants. Officials say the suspect took off in a stolen 2008 white Chevrolet Cobalt after the shooting.
