NEW YORK (PIX11) – Authorities released photos Saturday of two subjects who are tied to the slaying of a 22-year-old man shot dead last month in Harlem.

Around 2 a.m. on Aug. 12, Louis Perez, 22, was fatally shot in front of 501 W. 147th St., police said. Responding officers found Perez outside, with a gunshot wound to the head.

Investigators are hoping the pictures (above) will generate tips from the public to help police identify and find the two men who they believe were involved in the killing.

NYPD said one man, described as a dark-skinned Hispanic wearing a grey sweatshirt and dark pants, walked up to the victim and shot him.

Surveillance footage obtained recently by authorities shows the suspected gunman and another man, described as a black man wearing a blue sweat suit and dark hat, parking a 2006 white BMW X3 (model also pictured above) and walking toward the victim, police said.

Anyone with any information is urged to call NYPD’s anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
