Police release surveillance pictures hoping to ID shooter

Posted: Updated:
FLINT (WJRT) -

(07/19/12) - Flint Police weren't sure she would survive, but a 20-year-old woman is recovering Thursday after being shot in the head, earlier this month, inside of a party store.

We now have pictures, pulled from surveillance video, police hope could help identify the shooter.

Ambrianna Odom was inside of the Liquor Wheel, on Clio Road, early the morning of July 5.

Seconds before she was hit, 20-year-old Phillip Johnson Jr., was shot and killed outside of the Palm Tree Lounge right next door.

Flint Police think at least four guns were fired, but believe the man tied to Odom's shooting had no reason to pull the trigger.

But police believe he did, while running away, firing the gun over his head and in the opposite direction.

Police believe a bullet traveled inside of the Liquor Wheel just as Odom stepped back and right into its path.

"She had a headache and she was hungry. She went in to get a bag of potato chips," says Odom's mother Latavia Odom.

She was hit in the temple, was first in critical condition, but is now improving after being on life support for a week, according to her mother.

"They gave me 48 hours to make a decision, to take her off of life support, but only by the grace of God my daughter is walking and talking and feeding herself right now."

Odom expects her out of the hospital and home by the end of the month.

Police believe a store surveillance camera captured her shooter inside the Liquor Wheel moments before.

The image is blurry, but police think someone may recognize him.

If not him, then maybe women captured by a camera outside of the store.

In another image, they are seen interacting with the man and maybe even hugging him at one point.

Flint Police believe they may know who he is and would like to talk to them.

"My faith was strong enough to bring her from life support to here so I have faith that he will be found," Odom said.

Please call Sgt. Karl Petrich, at 810-250-3175, if you recognize the man or the women in the pictures.

Police and Odom's mother say Ambrianna has no connection to the homicide next door, at the Palm Tree Lounge, or any of the shooters.
