One man is dead after an overnight shooting at a business on North Monroe Street.

Police are still looking for a suspect in the shooting, which was reported shortly after midnight Tuesday at a business called Northwest Accessories, 3400 N. Monroe St. The business is listed as a tattoo, tobacco and piercing shop.
