PRICHARD, AL (WALA) -

Prichard Police have named a person of interest connected to a shooting that killed a man and wounded his 4-year-old child. 

Investigators want to talk to 20-year-old Christopher Johnson. Police said he should be considered armed and dangerous. 

According to police, the shooting happened around 1:45 p.m. Sunday in Prichard. Investigators said the victims were in a car that stopped near Thomas Avenue and Magee Street when someone opened fire on the vehicle. 

Two adults and two children were in the car. After shots were fired, the driver sped off and eventually stopped on Barretts Lane in Mobile, that's about ten minutes away.

A passenger in the car, Dortez Major, 21, was pronounced dead at the scene. His son was also wounded by the gunfire and is undergoing treatment at USA Medical Center. The boy's mother posted pictures and updates on Facebook Monday afternoon about her son's recovery. She says her son was shot multiple times in the leg and has a cast, but will be OK.

The driver is also in stable condition at USAMC.

Investigators believe the shooting is the result of a fight that happened Friday at a night club in Mobile. Police said shots were fired Sunday after the victim and the shooter crossed paths again in Prichard. 

Because Christopher Johnson is such a common name, FOX10 News has asked investigators for a picture of him. We have not heard back. If you know who he is, call Prichard Police at 251-452-7900.
