Police identify both suspects in O'Reilly Auto Parts shooting

- Detroit police say they're still searching for those responsible for the fatal shooting of an O'Reilly Auto Parts manager. 

During the course of the investigation, police say they were able to determine that the person taken into custody Friday was not one of the suspects involved in the shooting. Instead, police say the person was a relative of the main suspect and, therefore, was released.

According to police, 23-year-old Shawnta Anderson is believed to have pulled the trigger killing the store manager. The second suspect has been identified as 28-year-old Eboni Mcewen-Ross. 

Investigators say the women were trying to clear out the cash register when the manager, James Haller Jr., heard the commotion and went to check it out. Police say the woman seen on surveillance video in maroon pants and a white tank top fired a single shot that stuck Haller in the head. 

Police say the two suspects may be fleeing to Ohio because one of the suspects has family there. 

If you know anything about the shooting or the location of the suspects, you're asked to call Detroit Police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP. You will remain anonymous. 

Haller's funeral is scheduled for Monday, November 13 at 11 a.m. at Star Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit.
