The Newark Police Department says a person of interest in Tuesday’s Newark shooting outside Walmart is now a suspect in the crime.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of 27-year-old Gregory McCualsky. Officers say he’s being charged with one felony count of attempted murder.

Crews were dispatched around 2:30 a.m. outside the store and say they found 21-year-old Nitaleen McCualsky of Granville, who received a single gunshot wound to her right side. She was eventually taken by Medflight to Grant Medical Center in Columbus where health officials say she’s listed in stable condition.

Officers are still looking for Gregory. He was last seen in a dark colored Sedan. If you have any information on his whereabouts, you’re asked to call 740-670-7200.
