stop being politically correct and please mention the race of the person. How can we be on the lookout for someone if we don't know what race, white/black/asian/hispanic, etc. Our lives may depend on this information....

Hi Debra, Based on the release from DCPI, the police themselves are unsure of the race of the suspect in question.
