Police in Plymouth, Minnesota are asking for help locating a car involved in a fatal shooting on Highway 169 Tuesday night.

The suspect fled the scene. The suspect's vehicle is believed to be a light colored SUV - possibly a Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban or similar vehicle. It reportedly has damage to the driver’s side rear bumper.

The driver of the other vehicle was transported to North Memorial Medical Center where he later died.

The Armstrong-Cooper Youth Baseball Association in an email to parents, identified the man who was killed as Jay Boughton, an assistant coach of their 15U AAA team. He and his son were on their way home after a game.
