Investigators say Kenneth Chaney, 44, was shot several times and killed while waiting for his girlfriend in her car.
 
It happened around 4:15 a.m. on Tuesday.
 
Authorities said that it appears that the killing was not random. Police are leaning toward the theory that the gunman targeted Chaney.

Police also believe the gunman fled on foot.
