Wednesday's homicide is believed to be unrelated to Monday night's murder.

The suspect has been identified as Larry Brown, also known as Seydi Umar Cisse. Brown is a 39-year-old man believed to live in or around Louisville, Ky. According to reports, Brown knew the victim and was seen with a gun shortly after Smith's death. 

Police report that Brown was last seen driving a gold 2006 Mercedes 500 with Kentucky plates 797TEZ. He was seen wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cap, a black jacket and brown cargo shorts. 

Neighbors reportedly heard shots fired. There were several police vehicles in the area and a section of the street was cordoned off with police tape. 

Brown is currently at large and police are seeking warrants for his arrest. 

Police are asking that anyone with information about the homicide or Brown's whereabouts contact the Lorain Police Department or Sgt. Dennis Camarillo at 440-204-2105.
