The woman was a passenger and went inside the station before the shooting. Zubal said she is not a suspect. Detectives want to speak to her because she is possibly a witness, Zubal said.

Wilkins was shot about 10:24 p.m. June 7. Zubal said it is clear Wilkins knows the driver of the SUV, but he is not sure what led to the shooting.

Reports said an employee of the store told police that Wilkins walked up to the SUV and was shot.
He managed to drive himself to St. Elizabeth Health Center but has not been able to speak to investigators because of his injuries.
