Cox goes by the street name "Tay" and is known to use multiple aliases, police say. He has numerous tattoos on his arm, chest and neck. Police say he is considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Haddad said the shooting was "not a random act" during a press conference Friday, adding that Brown and Cox might have met each other at the club.

There's a combined total reward of $25,000 for information that leads to Cox's arrest. Haddad said U.S. Marshals and Crime Stoppers are offering a combined reward of $5,000 and the club owner is offering $20,000.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dearborn police at 313-943-2106, the U.S. Marshals at 313-234-5656 or Crime Stoppers at 800-SPEAK-UP.
