WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Dec. 8 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they are searching for a man who wore a Chewbacca mask when he and a pair of young men were involved in a shooting.

West Palm Beach Police said they responded to a report of a shooting Nov. 30 and a woman who witnessed the incident said the Chewbacca-masked shooter was driving a car with two men, later identified as Jodeci Lamar Window, 19, and Mario Johnson, 21, when they pulled up to a home and began shooting at Kyle Roney, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.

The witness said Roney, who was on the front stairs of a home and was not injured, is suspected by a local gang of being involved in a drug theft. Police said Roney did not cooperate with the investigation.

The woman said the shooters drove off when a man she identified as "Saint" returned fire.

The witness picked Window and Johnson, who were not masked, out of a photo lineup. They were arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
