MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- At the stroke of midnight, a bar fight turned into what police call an execution-style killing. Police know who the suspect is but haven't been able to find him. That's why Milwaukee Crime Stoppers needs your help. 

Milwaukee police say 49-year-old Christopher T. Stovall is the man who killed 42-year-old Romell O'Quin. 

It happened at Waz's Bar on 45th and Burleigh on Nov. 17. Around midnight, investigators say O'Quinn and Stovall got into an argument. The argument kept getting worse. That's when, police say, Stovall pulled out a gun and shot O'Quinn twice in the chest. 

O'Quinn, fighting for his life, tried to get away but the suspect followed him and shot him point blank in the head. 

All of this played out in front of a bar full of witnesses. 

"This incident took place not in a street, not in a house, but in a local bar," said Milwaukee Police Captain Craig Sarnow. "No argument should come to this, to the point where you feel that you have to pull out a firearm and kill somebody. Wait let me back that up, shoot them, follow them and then kill them. No argument is worth that." 

Shell casings from a .45 caliber gun were left on the scene, and police say the entire crime is on video. 

If you know where Christopher Stovall is, the community is asking that you come forward and help. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS. Your call is anonymous. If your tip leads to an arrest, you could get up to a $1,000 reward.
