"We don't know what the connection is between the victim and the shooter," he added.

The second shooting happened about 45 minutes later. One person was flown from the scene of the shooting in Donora on Heslep Avenue.

KDKA has learned police are looking for Zackory Sadler. He is wanted for both shootings. Police believe he may be driving a 2013 black BMW.

On Wednesday, Washington police said the vehicle was found unoccupied at 11 a.m. with the suspect still on the loose.

Right now, police in Washington, Fayette and Westmoreland counties are looking for Sadler, who police say has facial tattoos and was wearing a black hoodie and black sweatpants with gold lettering.
