Authorities on Thursday identified two men who were shot, one fatally, in Hibbing, Minn., on Christmas Day while the suspect remains a fugitive.

The manhunt continues for the suspected gunman, 29-year-old Jerome D. Spann, who police said fled the shooting scene in a vehicle Tuesday with another person.

Jeryel O. McBeth, 34, of Hibbing, was killed, while Jamien Q. Stukey, 25, also of Hibbing, was shot and treated at Fairview Range Medical Center, then released, police said.

Callers to 911 in the Iron Range city reported shots being fired Tuesday night in the 2400 block of 3rd Avenue E. Authorities have not released any details about what led to the shooting.

The state Bureau of Criminal Ap­prehension said in a statement that Spann may have traveled to St. Paul, where he has relatives.

Spann should be considered armed and dangerous, and he should not be approached, the agency added.

His criminal history in Minnesota includes two convictions for illegal gun possession and two for driving after his license was suspended.

Anyone with information about Spann's whereabouts is urged to call 911 or Hibbing police at (218) 263-3601.
