NOW: Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Reward upped to $8K to find suspect who shot man at Waz’s Bar

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- U.S. Marshals and Milwaukee police are hunting for Christopher Stovall, a man they call an armed and dangerous killer. 

There's now an $8,000 reward for anyone who comes forward with information that leads to his capture and arrest. 

Milwaukee police say 49-year-old Stovall is the man who killed 42-year-old Romell O'Quin. They say the shooting happened at Waz's Bar on 45th and Burleigh, on Nov. 17, 2019. 

Around midnight, investigators say O'Quinn and Stovall got into an argument and it escalated. That's when, police say, Stovall pulled out a gun and shot O'Quinn twice in the chest. 

O'Quinn, fighting for his life, tried to get away but the suspect followed him and shot him point blank in he head. 

Stovall has been charged with the crime, because police say everything happened in front of a bar full of witnesses and video cameras.

"This incident took place not in a street, not in a house, but in a local bar," said Milwaukee Police Captain Craig Sarnow. "No argument should come to this, to the point where you feel that you have to pull out a firearm and kill somebody. Wait let me back that up, shoot them, follow them and then kill them. No argument is worth that." 

If you know where Christopher Stovall may be, or anything about this case, call Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS.

You can also submit a tip to the P3 app in the app store. Your identity is always anonymous and you could get a reward if your tip leads to an arrest.
