ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Orange County deputies have released a sketch of a person they believe could be the gunman in a fatal shooting earlier this week.

The sketch, released Thursday, depicts someone with a prominent facial structure and wearing a hooded shirt or sweatshirt.

Deputies hope the sketch will help them identify the person responsible for the shooting death of 37-year-old James Collins Walker Harris, who was found suffering from a gunshot wound Tuesday evening on Hermit Smith Road before he was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
