(WXYZ) — The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is actively seeking a suspect in a fatal shooting that took place outside of Erebus Haunted House in Pontiac.

Man allegedly shoots, kills man for cutting in line at Pontiac's Erebus Haunted House

The suspect, Damon Parker Terrelle age 17, has warrants for First Degree Murder, Felony Firearms, and Carrying a Concealed Weapon stemming from the homicide.

Police say the victim, a 29-year-old from Detroit, was with his girlfriend and they had been waiting in line at the haunted house when the suspect in line ahead of them wouldn't move. That led to an argument between the victim and suspect, and the suspect expressed he had thought the victim had cut in line in front of him, police said.

At one point the victim and suspect went to the parking lot separately. Witnesses then say they heard gunshots. The victim was hit in the side, neck, and chest. A blue sedan was then seen fleeing from the area.
