Detroit cops have described last week's shooting as a "random execution," and are now looking for the man, who murdered a panhandler outside a gas station.

On Saturday, Detroit Police Department took to Twitter to describe the suspect as a white male, who was about 5 feet and 9 inches tall, and was wearing a hoodie, black pants and a puffer jacket with black footwear.

In the 11000 block of Dexter Avenue, the suspect chatted with the panhandler and gave him some cash then the former walked away but returned and shot the victim, said police. The victim was in his 50s and was often spotted around the gas station where he was fatally shot.

Detroit Police Captain James McGinnis said, "A lot of our homicides are people that know each other, maybe domestic incidents, but in this case, it just seems like a random execution for no reason and it's highly concerning for us."

The victim was declared dead at the scene while authorities are yet to disclose a motive for the murder, according to Fox News.

Last month, cops investigated the murder of a man, who was shot to death outside a bar in the New Center area in Detroit. Two men got into a fight inside the bar then the victim stepped outside, said police. Those who witnessed the crime said that when they got out of the bar, they found him with a gunshot wound and lying on the ground. The shooting turned out to be a fatal one as the victim died from his injuries later, reported Fox 2 Detroit.

In the last few weeks quite a few crimes have been reported in Detroit. Last week, a 32-year-old Detroit man was accused of repeatedly kicking his elderly employer in the head because he thought he was not paid well, according to Fox 2 Detroit.

On Thursday, Keith Demetrious Taylor was charged with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder in connection with the case involving his 75-year-old employer. Taylor, who works for a landscaping firm, and his employer were cutting a lawn in Rochester Hills when he asked for money before leaving the place, authorities said.

His employer gave him a pay cheque, but when he saw it he noticed that he had been underpaid after which he allegedly lost his cool and started shouting profanities at his boss and then attacked him. Taylor kicked the victim in the face and head until he lost consciousness. While the victim was on the ground, he allegedly stayed in the area shouting. Taylor kicked the victim him again when he tried to get up.

Sheriff Michael Bouchard called the attack unprovoked and brutal. Taylor will now face court on Oct. 19.
