Chester police are looking for a suspect who allegedly shot a man Wednesday morning and fled.

Just after 8:30 a.m., police were called to the 1000 block of Hunt Terrace, where they found an unidentified 22-year-old man on the ground behind the residence with a gunshot to the head. He was taken to Crozer Chester Medical Center, where he was in critical condition, police said.

The suspect, a man in his 20s, left the area in a light-blue or light-gray Ford Taurus with tinted windows, police said.
