He was taken to a hospital for treatment and is expected to recover.

Investigators say they are searching for the driver of a "possible" red Honda that was caught on surveillance video at the time of the incident.

Detectives were also initially looking for the blue truck seen in the video. After locating it and identifying the owner, officials say he is not considered a suspect at this time. They are still looking for the red car.

On June 28, police say they are looking for 28-year-old Denesha Lani Cameron, who is considered a person of interest.
