ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Atlanta Police are still looking for a gunman they say shot a woman and an Uber driver in Northwest Atlanta. They released photos and videos of the man Saturday morning.

He is described as 6 feet tall, in his early thirties, and was last seen wearing a purple shirt walking on Joseph E. Boone Boulevard.

Investigators say they believe the shooter knew the woman he shot.

“We have been able to link the vehicle that was involved in the accident, that young lady and the shooter we observed them at a store they left that store together," said Lt. Ricardo Vazquez.

Police say the suspect shot the woman in the face, but they are not exactly sure where. The woman lost control of her car on Oakmont Drive following the shooting.

The shooter then took off and walked on Joseph E. Boone Boulevard. Police say this is the location where he opened fire on an Uber driver.

Bullets went through the passenger side of the vehicle; the passenger suffered injuries from the glass and the Uber driver was shot in the abdomen.

The Uber driver was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical, but stable condition. 

"We have no reason to believe the Uber driver or Uber had anything to do with the other incident between the shooting suspect and the female,” said Vazquez.

Both victims are in stable condition.
