PONTIAC, Mich. (WJBK) -

As the families of 19-year-old Shuntrice Sylvester and 28-year-old Anthony Ellis mourn and cry out for justice, Oakland County Sheriff's investigators are chasing down leads and looking for the shooter, who robbed a Clinton Township man outside Porky's Bar in Pontiac.

While the gunman was stealing cash and Cartier glasses around 2:00 a.m. Sunday, the sheriff said people on a nearby party bus tried to intervene.

"They began to scream at the robber like anybody that cares about anybody else would do," Sheriff Michael Bouchard explained.  "He turned and fired into the bus."

Shuntrice, a young mother, and Anthony were both shot and killed on Mother's Day.  In all, 19 people were on that bus, including the driver.

Those witnesses have given investigators a description of the shooter.  They say he is a black male in his twenties, about 6'0" tall and 180 pounds with braided hair.

Deputies are also looking at surveillance video from nearby businesses for any images of the suspect.

"We've seen violent acts, but this individual intentionally and wilfully shot into a party bus at people that presented no threat to him whatsoever," Bouchard said.  "I want him off the streets."

Investigators are also working to determine if anyone else is involved.  Anyone with information on the deadly party bus shooting should call the Oakland County Sheriff's Department.
